Faking is already implemented: \kap{foo} (see cont-eni, chapter 5.7).  
You decide if this is uglier than using latin modern for section  
titles. I have actually bought a couple of professional fonts, and  
once you've seen the real McCoy, you'll find the fake ones repulsive.  
But most people won't even realize, I guess.
