Yes, of course there is, but you will have to go to the Open Type Specification for that.

Since the specification is the joint work of Adobe and Microsoft, the statement by M. that an OTF file may contain TrueType outlines could be true, but never implemented by anybody; or it could have been M.'s intention to use the OTF extension for its OT files, but thought better of it.
