I have spent some while trying to look at Cyrillic encoding in
PostScript fonts, partly to make Lucida Cyrillic available.  
While doing that I also looked at Monotype Times.

What I have done is create:

 a) OT2enc.def and OT2wncyr.fd files to make Washington Cyrillic work 
    in normal LaTeX. 

 b) fontinst .mtx file for Cyrillic glyph names, and .etx file for 
    OT2 encoding; these in two versions, one for the names as found in
    Monotype Times Cyrillic, and one for names in Lucida Cyrillic 
    (AFII numbers, whatever they may be)

 c) a script (go) to run all the Monotype and Lucida fonts and make the metrics

 d) dvips map files for both families.
The result is a pretty good match for Lucida, and an almost perfect 
one for Monotype Times. The only thing missing in the latter (I pull
in a few characters from the corresponding roman font) is the strange
mis-shaped breve at '044 in Washington Cyrillic.

Note that i have left the Y&Y names for Lucida Cyrillic alone as the `raw' names
because I couldnt be bothered to rename them 

Have fun
