[XeTeX] GFS Artemisia fonts

Today I was looking for a less common font, for something more  
private. So I taught my Tiger system the GFS Artemisia fonts. But,  
they don't work so easily in XeTeX with fontspec (there also seems to  
be a problem with xcolor): the BoldItalic variant calls itself a  
member of the GFS Didot family! So with GFS Artemisia it's not so  
simple to use it (you will have to declare explicitly the BoldItalic  
variant) – and, when both GFS Artemisia and GFS Didot fonts are  
active, fontspec might fail to select the BoldItalic variant when GFS  
Didot is the main font ...

I reported this to TeX Live and to GFS (Greek Font Society).
