Probably, since ".notdef" is supposed to be the only name that starts

Personally, if I *must* give a glyph a nonsense name, I tend to go

No, Apple recommends that you file a bug against our software. If the
font works OK on Windows, it should work OK on a Mac.
FWIW, the validation engine in the Tiger version of Font Book has not
proven particularly satisfactory and we are hoping to introduce
improvements in future OS releases. My recommendation to a font
vendor who finds their font doesn't pass muster with Font Book when it
does work on Mac OS X (or even Windows) would be to file a bug.
