I have run into a similar problem with a font I am currently developing,
which (like GFS Didot) has small caps only for the regular shape. I
tried to avoid this by changing

                          Letters=UppercaseSmallCaps]{FPL Neu}



However, that only shifted the warnings to other places. Fortunately,
fontspec.sty provides the 'quiet' option which supresses such warnings.
One might miss useful warnings that way, though. Hence I take this as a
hint to design small caps for the other shapes ... ;-)
