What about using 'old' TeX & Type1 fonts?

I am also considering to buy Lucida fonts (from Tug.org) hoping they can
be used with XeTEX too?

Thank you. I'll take a look.

However, while working with present LyX/LaTeX I often need to use,
besides Croatian chars, TeX accents to get diacritics for Sanskrit (not
Devanagari), so I have to check how are those free fonts populated, i.e.
whether they support Croatian as well as accents needed for Sanskrit

I am trying to give some input to devs not to forget XeTeX support in
LyX, especially considering that XeTeX is supposed, afaik, to become
part of TeXLive 2006.
