But they still use MacRoman glyph names, right?

There's been a discussion about an update to 8r encoding recently to 
incorporate all glyphs found in MacRoman. As far as I know it didn't 
show up in the fontinst-prerelease directory on CTAN yet but I could 
send you the etx and enc files.

This would not be necessary when using the updated encoding vectors. 
You simply reencode the fonts to 8r and work with them as usual.
