According to fontspec manual  
(http://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/fontspec/fontspec.pdf), no  
is not necessary to load xunicode:

Here an excerpt of the manual:

     3 Package loading and options

     For basic use, no package options are required:
     Package options will be introduced below; some preliminary details are  
discussed first:
     xunicode Ross Moore’s xunicode package is now automatically loaded for  
users of both
     XELATEX and LuaLATEX. This package provides backwards compatibility  
with LATEX’s methods
     for accessing extra characters and accents (for example, \% , \$ ,  
\textbullet , \"u , and so on),
     plus many more Unicode characters.

The default template "article-fontspec.tex" provided by TeXworks 0.4.5,  
loads explicitly xunicode, which is not necessary.
