Actually, now that I get around to looking at this, I realise that
this warning existed *by design* in fontspec. It was supposed to alert
people when they were using slshape -- but since it's triggered by the
book class I've decided now that's not such a good idea:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Hoefler Text}
\begin{document}
test
\end{document}

In the next version of fontspec, automatic substitutions from slanted
to italic will be done silently (i.e., it's changed from a <->sub* to
a <->ssub* for those who have read fntguide.pdf).

Cheers,
Will
