It definitely looks like a good way to go, except that I wouldn’t know how
to use multiple features at the same time. Would it be possible to input
font-features as a symbol list, i.e. (random example)
{ \override TextScript.font-features = onum.smcp 4-"foo" }
\markup { \override #'(font-features . (onum smcp)) "foo" } ?
Or at least as a list of strings.
Right they can be combined as a string:

\markup { \override #'(font-features . "onum,smcp") { Hello 0123456789 } }

But this isn't especially flexible or obvious with regards to
combining features (like you said). I'll think about your other
suggestions. Thanks.

Reading the docs for <> gave me more to think about: we might even use an alist to allow for things like
\override font-features.ligatures = #'(clig dlig hlig)
\override font-features.number-case = #'onum

Though, that would be even more complicated, I suppose.

Yours, Simon
