Fonts don't really have any control over which features are on or off by
default. Each OpenType Layout engine applies such feature set itself.
The script-specific specifications section at:
(esp. "Standard scripts (Latin, Cyrillic, Greek etc.)" and the feature
descriptions provided in
give recommendations to OpenType Layout engine developers on which
features should be on by default for which writing systems.
