At least on Ubuntu, LilyPond supports OpenType glyph substitution and
glyph positioning -- something I use quite heavily since I typeset
scores in Church Slavonic -- at least the ccmp, rlig, kern, mark, and
mkmk features work without any problems (though there seems to be no
way to access stylistic alternatives). If you can figure out how to
pass language identifiers to the font renderer, you could even take
advantage of language-based GSUB and GPOS rules, which are, at least
theoretically, part of the OpenType technology.
