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.
