For the benefit of others searching this list in search of a solution
to this challenge, I ended up using FontForge to create my own
smallcaps version of the font. Because it was sans-serif the stroke
thickening feature in FontForge enabled me to create glyphs of the
correct weight. XeTeX's easy font handling makes a solution like this
quite practical.
