At least on Mac OS X that's the default behaviour. On other OS'  
xdvipdfmx uses the installed fonts to fetch the glyphs from + good  
old TeX fonts – although that's possible on Mac OS X, too, the real  
problem is with math. TeX math does not use Unicode encoded fonts.

Two years ago Will Robertson released xeuler for XeTeX. He patched  
euler.sty and created FD and MAP file fragments. Maybe you could do  
the same with Minion ... A general solution seems to be in work. For  
example to use the STIX math fonts. Or to use Unicode math characters  
from beyond the Basic Multilingual PANE (BMP), i.e. beyond U+FFFF.
