Doesn't appear to be...
Your test, adapted as shown below, gives the same error as before:

\catcode`\: \letter  % change : to become a letter
\catcode`\. \letter  % change . to become a letter
\catcode`\1 \letter  % change 1 to become a letter
\catcode`\0 \letter  % change 0 to become a letter
\font\testA="Savoye LET Plain:1.0"
{\testA  testing letter }

The error, btw, is:

! Font \testA=Savoye LET Plain:1 not loadable: ATSUI font not found.
<to be read again>
l.10 {
       \testA  testing letter }

So no luck with this technique, either.
