Indeed, it works in that simple way! (I always used to set the basic  
feature first and then select another feature on top of it, the  
lesson learned from plain TeX.)

So what's left as Jacques' mistake is the two steps of \fontspec[this] 
{font} + \setromanfont[those]{font} that do not work that simple.  
I.e. "SmallCapsFont = {MetaNormal-Caps}" in the \setromanfont  
statement is resetting the former \fontspec statement ...



A lot of us are working harder than we want, at things we don't like  
to do. Why? ...In order to afford the sort of existence we don't care  
to live.
