[lltx] rand feature in fontspec / microtype

Hi all,

I just found out about the rand feature (e.g. in the Punk Nova font) and
wondered if there was a fontspec key for it. Would be nice to have
something like \fontspec[Random]{fontname} instead of using
\fontspec{fontnamed:rand}. Is this planned/possible?

Something quite different: What are the reasons that there is no support
für microtype in fontspec so far? As far as I can see, microtypographic
features are possible by setting \pdfprotrudechars and \pdfadjustspacing
and loading fonts with :protrusion=default and :expansion=default. But I
guess there must be something more or else it would already be present
in fontspec, wouldn't it? Or is it difficult to use non-default values
and therefore no support?
