font-ini for os > OldStyle
type-syn for OldStyle > MathItalic in most cases.

But I would recommend looking at font variants. The "palatino bonus" at
the end of type-syn is a brief example, and the wiki has some stuff about
Font Variants as well.

But wait, where are you coming from? Are your source fonts really Minion
.pfbs, or are they from OpenType? With OpenType, you can use some nice
TeXFont stuff to select the features (OSF, SC, alternates) without having
to draw from two arbitrary encodings.
