 - microtype=all or true or false or a scheme,
 - protrusion = true or false or compat (\pdfprotrusion 1) or a scheme
 - expansion = true or false or a scheme
as options for fontspec? Then users would have to build their scheme
in lua instead of passing very long TeX options (calling a function
like fontspec.microtype.create_protrusion_scheme)... for me that would
be OK... But then what about enabling microtype=all by default in
