Thanks for this pointer! Yes, it does work now (tried both LM and  
TeX-Gyre). And I see that \smallcaps works in TeX-Gyre but not LM... an  
interesting subtlety.

So to sum: \sc [etc. I presume] is defined for the typescript and  
\smallcaps [etc. I presume] is defined for the font itself (where can add  
and subtract opentype features etc.). Thanks again and
