AFAIK, one would need to actually convert the fonts into the standard
.ttf format which would be usable on other systems if transferred there,
so potentially troublesome from a licensing standpoint.

Any sort of VF-like scheme would have to be a Carbon or Java or Cocoa
program which was able to use native Mac OS X system calls to access the
fonts, a la Textures and the other Mac-specific TeX implementations.
