Hi Jonathan,
there are some non-ASCII characters in fontspec.sty.  This shouldn't
hurt in a UTF-8 environment.  But I'm not sure whether they had been
used intentionally.

$ LESSCHARSET=ASCII less Master/texmf-dist/tex/xelatex/fontspec/fontspec.sty
      \zf at PackageWarning{%
        <E2><80><98>\XKV at tfam=\XKV at tkey<E2><80><99> feature not supported
         for AAT font <E2><80><98>\fontname\zf at basefont<E2><80><99>}%

Obviously <E2><80><98> and <E2><80><99> are single quotes.  
But there is also
        \zf at PackageWarning{%
          AAT feature '\XKV at tfam=\XKV at tkey'
          (#1,#2) not available in font \fontname\zf at basefont}%

with ASCII single quotes, hence I think the UTF-8 characters had been
used unintentionally.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
