I'm pretty sure microtype can't do font expansion with xelatex so you are left with protrusion only. I usually use it with simply
and it seems to use reasonable defaults.
I must admit that I only use xelatex if I need to use a special font (I don't tend to use non-latin alphabets so T1 font encoding is good enough for my usage) and love the combination of protrusion and font expansion which makes documents really look amazingly ``gray''.
