Specifying virtual fonts in XML for handling variant characters

Has anyone come up with a solution for specifying virtual ("synthetic")
fonts in XML?

I need more than just saying "Latin block uses font x, greek block uses font
y", I need to be able to say "This character should use font x, that
character should use font y".

Has anyone come up with a standard way to markup which characters in the
private-use block are being used. If the Maths people are using parts of the
block, it probably would be a good idea to have some system whereby when our
documents are merged your private-use area does not overlay my private use

Does anyone know what the current status of webfonts is, and what the
relation to Netscape's "Dynamic Fonts"?
