If you'd like to do some development, George has added support to
fontforge for generating true small caps from existing caps.

It should be a relatively simple operation to use that dialog to add
the .sc glyphs, and a bit of legwork to add the relevant OpenType

I beleive a patch adding those glyphs and features to the fonts would
be welcome.  They'd prefer a patch for all of the faces, but are likely
to accept one for just all_serif, all_sans or all_mono....
