Why do you think so? Admittedly,
Emacs.bold.attributeFont:  -bitstream-bitstream vera sans 
looks like XLFD, but on my machine I have no X font of this name:

#xlsfonts -fn "*vera*"
xlsfonts: pattern "*vera*" unmatched

and this XLFD also does not work with other X applications. 
So my (totally uneducated) guess is that emacs23-xft somehow uses XLFD 
syntax also for truetype fonts, but in an slightly inconsistent way 
(otherwise, bold & italic xft fonts should work automagically). 
Perhaps someone who really understands this can explain it?

PS: Sorry for destroying the threading. I'm still not subscribed to 
this list and read it through the archive 
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-pretest-bug which doesn't show 
message-ids. Perhaps it's time to subscribe...
