I'm not sure how you found the SmallCapsFont without also noticing the  
SmallCapsFeatures feature :)

Text,SmallCapsFeatures={Letters=SmallCaps}]{Doulos SIL}

But I make no recommendation on the aesthetics of such code!

By the way, to those who mentioned such code as
   \fontspec[RawFeature=+smcp]{Minion Pro}

this shouldn't really be necessary -- fontspec and XeTeX should  
automatically detect the small caps shape and assign it to the scshape  
and textsc commands.

If `\fontspec{Minion Pro}\scshape` doesn't select small caps for you,  
please submit a bug report.

Best regards,
