I hope that for GTK+-2.2, we'll be able to instant apply all the Xft

 - Antialiasing on or off
 - Whether to use sub-pixel antialiasing and RGB vs. BGR
 - What sort of hinting to use
 - The DPI used to map points to pixels

Whether you _want_ to offer all those options is another matter...

(You can't instant apply the option whether to use Xft or not, since
that changes the set of available fonts but I think with Xft2 there is
no real reason to offer the alternative of not using Xft.)
