Thanks David. I've done some experiments today and it seems possible to 
access these glyphs via the experimental font-feature-settings CSS 
property. For example, this works for me in Gecko:

       .oldstyle {
         font-family: STIX;
         -moz-font-feature-settings: 'onum';
       .variant {
         font-family: STIX;
         -moz-font-feature-settings: 'ss03';

<mn class="oldstyle">0123456789</mn>
<mo class="variant">|&#x2205;|</mo>
