the MinionPro project was asked about our wishes for an improved font
selection scheme. Currently there are three things which we miss in

o Separate values of \bfdefault,... depending on the font family.

o Support for many-dimensional font shapes. We need:
  - one axis for roman/italic/swash,
  - one axis for u&lc/small caps/spaced small caps/versals,
  - one axis for text figures/lining figure, and
  - one axis for proportional figures/tabular figures.

o The ability to change math fonts within the document. Currently,
  \SetSymbolFont and friends are declared \@onlypreamble. This is
  needed, for example, to switch to tabular figures when setting tables.
