Yup, but as you noticed, there's a catch...

Insert standard grumble about DEK's 16-family limit here...

If you're keen to get round the family limit, you could try producing
a MC-encoded roman font (suitable for use as particle symbols,
checmical formulae, etc.) but with enough kerning information to make
it possible to use it as an operator font as well.  It may be that
this is technically infesible (the kern table might end up being huge)
but you never know...
