Thanks for prompt response and original acknowledgment, but may I please
ask about state of this bug? As it is now, I can't compile *all* my
documents, because used style sets defaultfontfeatures.

With hope and thanks,

P.S. Docutils xetex backend uses defaultfontfeatures in document
preamble[1], so because of this bug also rst2xetex is broken too, at
least with default settings (Cc'ing Günter Milde - docutils xetex
backend maintainer).
