As LilyPond doesn't support these glyphs I doubt Abraham has integrated them in Profondo.
That's correct, but it is on my TODO list. For the time being, it's better to use the original code that was created to use SMuFL fonts in LilyPond (as shown previously in this thread at 

The nice thing is that you can use both Profondo (for native support of the core set of glyphs) and the lily2smufl code to provide instant access to every other glyph found in Bravura. It's a win-win, I think. This is part of why I've hesitated to integrate the rest of the Bravura directly into Profondo. I don't think it will provide that much more convenience than is already available.
