Ok, works just fine. This is a screenshot of a font-locked book that assigns Times New Roman in its stylesheet. I made a copy of Seagram and assigned this to it: family: Times New Roman, style: Regular, name: Times New Roman Regular.

After restart and opening the book, it needed to set to the new Times New Roman font once, and after that it was locked in the new as seen in the screenshot. Note that the font is changed to Palatino, but locked to the newly created Times New Roman.

Update: Very interesting side-note. The Book that I used, even though assigns Times New Roman in its stylesheet, it does NOT default to and lock into Caecilia Regular, but to a san-serif font. Creating fake Times New Roman did change the font it finally ends up beeing locked into. My example from earlier about defaulting to Caecilia Regular only applies to situations where a non-font-locked book is concerned.
