[tex-eplain] eplain and XeTeX

I'd like to use a Unicode font with eplain-on-XeTeX.
Just specify its name to \font? XeTeX-reference.pdf talks about the
primitive commands XeTeX provides.
However, I'd like to be able to specify Unicode characters using
\char, i.e., \char"XYZW should typeset as U+XYZW.
Does XeTeX itself support that? That's not something Eplain is going to
have anything to do with.
I'm not seeing anything about changes to \char in XeTeX-reference, but I
don't really know. The bare commands for this seem to be
\XeTeXglyphindex and \XeTeXcharglyph.
It'd be great to have more write-ups/intros/whatever on plain xetex, for sure.
