Is there a way to allow this mechanism to select the Caption, Regular, 
Subhead, and Display fonts for a specified size range? Something like

\fontspec[<-8.9>={Warnock Pro Caption}]{Warnock Pro}
\fontspec[<9-13>={Warnock Pro}]{Warnock Pro}
\fontspec[<13.1-24>={Warnock Pro Subhead}]{Warnock Pro}
\fontspec[<24.1->={Warnock Pro Display}]{Warnock Pro}

making the size information global and allow one to set Bold as

\fontspec[Bold={Warnock Pro Semibold}]{Warnock Pro}

which would retain all the previous size information.

Or possibly allow one to set Bold as

\fontspec[{Bold,<-8.9>}={Warnock Pro Semibold Caption}]{Warnock Pro}?

We are usually convinced more easily by reasons we have found ourselves 
than by those which have occurred to others.
