I am afraid that this is a limitation in LaTeX's font selection 
mechanism (although not in TeX itself).

If you need to change the inter-word space locally, you can use the 
\spaceskip and \xspaceskip commands (see TeX by Topic §20.3).

I should document all this in fontspec itself. I've added a note to do 
so for the next release.
