Aha.  Thanks for looking into it.  After a bit of tweaking of the  
\newcommand, this is now working. I'd be curious to know what the  
problem is with the font family recognition, if you ever figure it out.

For reference, just in case someone searches archives, this is the  
pair of commands that make it go:

\newfontinstance\armfont[Bold=Mshtakan Bold,Italic=Mshtakan  
Oblique,BoldItalic=Mshtakan BoldOblique]{Mshtakan}
\newcommand{\arm}[1]{{\armfont #1}}

(Also thanks to Bruno, though I am going to stick with fontspec.sty  
for now.)
