After some testing, I found that \usepackage[safe]{tipa} was causing the error. But my workaround (encoding T1) did not harm my non-ASCII characters, since I used Adobe Garamond Pro instead of Hoefler Text in my real document.

The only declaration which does not work yet is the following:

   {<-> "AGaramondPro-Regular:Letter\space Case=Small\space Caps"}{}

Can't XeTeX access Adobe Garamond Pro's small caps? Or am I missing something?

Now there's just two more tasks to make me a happy XeTeX convert:

XeTeX should play nice with the beamer class
pstricks graphs should appear after a XeTeX typesetting

Is this possible at all?

Yes, you are right. I will join the XeTeX mailing list.
