It is quite possible that I misundestand you and section 7 of the fontspec
But although I understand that I can create/select AAT/OTF font features
*inside* font files, I still do not gather how to instruct xelaselect an
entirely other font file so that xelatex/fontspec correctly choose the
boldface *font file* of the SmallCap when it has to.
