Yes, I realize what you're trying to do. But the way I'd approach it  
would be to write a little script that uses a tool like ttx or  
ftxdumperfuser or Font::TTF (Perl module) to collect the relevant  
info, and generates the TeX input required. So the xetex run would be  
one step of a "batch" process used to create the complete sample.
