Unfortunately, that is not that easily possible. the Type 1 variant of
these fonts in installed alongside the Opentype variant. Since the Font
Names of both variants are slightly different, both variants show up in
font selectors. Thus, I need a rule to exclude all of the Type 1
variants that carry the common Font Family name in their Font Names.

Anyway, thank you all for your insightful replies!
