Thanks Behdad,

For sensible universal coverage that default set seems right, as i'm 
assuming most tags are there as default for non-latin.
Is the idea that non-default features can only be toggled via css calls? 
or might there be at some point be a way to toggle opentype feature sets 
via e.g. the browser itself too?
The more feature tags supported the better if you ask me, and leave the 
toggle-ability up to the css coders :)
