Yep. It will spit a warning if you attempt Numbers=Lining (et al.)  
and the font doesn't support it. There's no reason I couldn't do it  
with RawFeature; I must have just been lazy when implementing it.

I would have expected it to work regardless...(I assume you adjusted  
the font being requested? Oops, I should have used Hoefler Text.) If  
you can post the console output, that'd be helpful in working out  
what the problem was.

Oh, also, the Numbers=Lining is unnecessary. I've never heard of a  
font with both uppercase and lowercase superscript numbers. (Adam?)

Yep, that's what my code should have done.

You need to wrap it in \makeatletter...\makeatother like my example
