Ah, here's a conflict: XeTeX doesn't have latin modern yet. (Needs to be
converted to OpenType, with some special table enabled... JK hasn't
documented it yet.) Do you have a switch to avoid the cmr-lm conversion?

Also, something I just realised (thanks to Vit's example): XeTeX hasn't a
clue when it comes to grid typesetting. (Has to do with the difficulty of
getting the metrics from the platform fonts, I think.)
