I never understood that FAQ.  I have been using XeLaTeX for sometime now
with minimal configuration.

This is pretty much what I do.

;;; XeLaTeX customisations
;; remove "inputenc" from default packages as it clashes with xelatex
(setf org-export-latex-default-packages-alist
      (remove '("AUTO" "inputenc" t) org-export-latex-default-packages-alist))

(add-to-list 'org-export-latex-packages-alist '("" "xltxtra" t))
;; commented for now as preferable to set per file for now
;; (add-to-list 'org-export-latex-packages-alist '("" "unicode-math" t))
;; (add-to-list 'org-export-latex-packages-alist
;;           "\\setmathfont{Linux Libertine O}" t) ; needed for unicode-math

;; org to latex customisations, -shell-escape needed for minted
(setq org-latex-to-pdf-process          ; for regular export
      '("xelatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o %f"
        "xelatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o %f"
        "xelatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o 
      org-export-dispatch-use-expert-ui t ; non-intrusive export dispatch
      org-e-latex-pdf-process           ; for experimental org-export
      '("xelatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o %f"
        "xelatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o %f"
        "xelatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o 

I do not use unicode-math anymore but the OP can try uncommenting some
of the lines above.

Hope this helps.
