I just tested your examples on a Mac with MacTeX 2016. I saw no differences at all. I also rendered the text with LuaLaTeX and saw no difference either.

comment How many font styles of $x$ and $X$ can we use?
@barbarabeeton OK, but there's nothing intrinsically wrong in using them directly. It's simply a matter of convenience, right?

Why do you recommend not using them directly?

Very strange. My PDFLaTeX output (MacTeX 2015, El Capitan) says nothing about Quartz: tinypic.com/r/1jm33a/9

comment Problem with interword spacing in LuaLaTeX
@egreg So I can either add WordSpace=3.0 to fontspec or instead use microtype's \lsstyle[3000]{...}, right? Is this a bug?

comment Problem with interword spacing in LuaLaTeX
@egreg I don't understand. I need the extra spacing in that line. What you're saying is that I should request it using microtype instead of fontspec?

@egreg Not sure what to expect from using \textls[200]{THIS IS A TEST} . I seem to get no change in the letter spacing.
