No, sorry; it's not clear to me how one could approach that. I assume 
the popups in the Typography palette are derived from a 'Zapf' table in 
the fonts, but it's hard to envision a workable TeX-source-level way to 
specify such choices, in the absence of some kind of meaningful naming 
of the variants.
