OK, fair enough.  I suppose the whole point, from my perspective, is that I have no plans (and no need) to use "the various size commands" (etc), since these fonts are intended for use within a Tikz and it is Tikz that will scale the glyphs rather than TeX, so I was looking for a simple solution whereby I could declare all \newfontfaces at the sizes I need and leave it at that.
