Note that the JVM can load fonts dynamically without any "installation", but having installed one already prevents loading another one under program control.

It is not possible to load a font from a font file, and to use it independently of the fonts installed already? JVM font management seems broken in more ways than one.

I don't call anything broken on the JVM. It is just very peculiar. Things like the above are the norm, not the exception.
