No, the parameters are fine and I think the only difference is the size
of the delimiters, which is caused by LuaOTFLoad setting the
FractionDelimiterSize parameters which don't really exist in the fonts
(they are LuaTeX-only additions); changing line 116 of luaotfload.lua to
            mc.FractionDelimiterDisplayStyleSize = 1.7 * size
yields much better results. However, that is a font-specific design
issue, and I wonder whether LuaTeX should really use those parameters if
the font doesn't have them.
