Alt fonts' names are displayed in one horizontal line in Aa window, so width of this line is a limiter for number of displayed fonts. I guess, if you'll give one-letter names (A to G) to your fonts' typefaces, you'll see more than 3-4 alt fonts in the Aa window.

Also, fonts' names are displayed in alphabetical order, aren't they? Does your case with ITC Berkeley contradicts with this observation?

All fonts in the /mnt/us/fonts are available in system after refreshing Fontconfig cache (i.e. ;fc-cache), so fonts with typface name starting from I-Z are "hidden" (i.e. displayed out of bounds of Aa window) only because of alphabetical order of displaying and not so wide single horizontal list "line".

This way isn't hack at all. It's a "stock feature". I mean, it was intentionally implemented by Amazon programmers, I've just discovered it.
