No, there's no reason for that.  It really depends on the application
where it searches the files.

This is it.  There are other PS font formats, but Type 1 is PFA and
PFB (well, on the Mac there are some old obscure wrapper formats, but
I don't think that you have to take care of that).  Look into
FreeType's `formats.txt' documentation file.
