Not all OpenType features are created equal.  Some are out there for user to
turn on or off.  Those are 'supported' already.  Other features need custom
code in the layout engine.  Those need to be evaluated and supported one by
one.  The plan is "eventually" to support them all, but that doesn't mean much.
