Hans lowercased all fonts for ConTeXt to prevent problems with casing
(to ConTeXt the casing doesn't matter).

It can easily be that LuaLaTeX team took that part over and didn't
consider lowercasing the name when matching the font requested by the
user. (But this is pure speculation.)

This is a font shipped with ConTeXt. (Don't ask me what exactly it
does, but developers use it for testing.)
