True, but one mildly encouraging note is that it does at least support 
the optical scaling axis in the old Type 1 Minion MM font, as can be 
verified by using this font with XeTeX. The AAT-info.tex sample file 
for XeTeX, run with Minion MM Roman, reports three supported axes of 
variation, Weight, Width, and Optical Size.

(Perhaps I should note, before somebody else points it out, that it 
fails to count the number of glyphs, illustrating that 
\XeTeXcountglyphs and \XeTeXglyph currently work only with TT and not 
T1-based fonts. That's one for the To Do list....)
