I think XeTeX doesn't offer this level of manipulation.  However, I
don't know how much it has inherited from Omega.

`opatgen' should be able to do that.  Unfortunately, it's not
maintained, and its C++ code is not compilable with today's compilers.
I guess that an experienced C++ programmer can fix this rather easily.
As usual, we need to find such a person who has time and interest to
do this...
