A somewhat na\"\i ve question, if I may ?  Reading the Fontspec manual,
fairly early on I see :

My question concerns the phrase "in a LATEX document".  Does Fontspec
also support non-LaTeX usage of XeTeX, and in particular, is it
possible to use Fontspec successfully entirely within the Plain XeTeX
framework ?
