OK.  However, LilyPond's Emmentaler font (containing musical glyphs)
also provides various design sizes and would be a good candidate.

If I have understood correctly how the `size' feature works, it goes
one step further: Let's assume that I request emmentaler-13 while
using 19pt, and emmentaler-18 covers the range 17pt<=size<20pt.  After
applying the `size' feature, the application will use emmentaler-18.
BTW, XeLaTeX supports this, and the `fontspec' package for XeLaTeX
provides a nice emulation interface of it.

Would this possible with fontconfig also?
