I'm not even sure that the various type 1 versions of >CM, lucida or symbol agree. There is no standard for glyph names in the case of math symbols. The standardization to the extent it exists is due to the fact that the fonts come from the same source or were copied from existing fonts. Reasonable names were invented for Adobe Lucida Math by Bigelow & Holmes (referring to Symbol where possible), these were then used by BSR and Y&Y in CM, then Y&Y used those in Lucida New Math (adding a large number of new names), then in MathTime. >Does the unicode glyph registry help? I don't think so. One reason is that is it *not* a glyph registry, but a *character* registry. Another its that UNICODE does not have very good coverage. AFII numbers are an alternative since AFII *is* a glyph registry. Some fonts use AFII numbers (32 bit), particularly Cyrillic fonts. >Where do the fontinst names for OM* encodings?
