I think that provided you write the necessary macros to duplicate the 
\DeclareMathFont etc etc into accepting unicode-range input, then 
you're okay. It doesn't work out of the box as I discovered long ago 
(see example appended at end).

But some time in the future, something along these lines definitely 
needs to be done in order to cater for the STIX fonts. (That would be a 
great press release to be able to say that they work immediately out of 
the box as soon as the fonts were released :))

I'll be very interested to see what you create!
Such developments have application to all extensions of TeX that have 
the capability to handle unicode fonts.




\setromanfont{Lucida Grande}
% yes, this is bad. just the first unicode font that came to mind...

\AtBeginDocument{% required because of fontspec tomfoolery


This is Lucida Grande.

Char test: \char "0393
