I'm not entirely sure what's going on here, either, but as you've
observed, the smallcaps mechanism handles these things very robustly. I
was mucking about in this area recently, so here's a hack that hooks into
that mechanism (hopefully without ruining the rest of the smallcaps).
Insert disclaimers here ;) 





This is new stuff to me, so I can't really articulate what's happening at
the moment. The code in core-fnt.tex isn't too tough to follow, though,
if you want to examine further.
