I don't think I knew that!

At the moment this would logically fit into the "Alternate=x" feature  
of fontspec since "Variant" already covers the "+ss0x"-type features.  
But if anyone has a better idea let me know :)

Jonathan, is it possible to query how many 'salt' features exist in  
the font?

All the best,
