Right; xetex itself doesn't use this, the output driver (xdvipdfmx)  
is what needs it.

Does it work to use mathpazo with regular latex (or pdflatex in dvi  
output mode) and the dvipdfmx driver? The behavior should be the same.

I'll look into this shortly (if it doesn't get solved in the  
meantime.... good start, Ralf!).
