I've been trying to create a custom module but unfortunately is seems that fontspec is not handled by a module at all, instead it is placed into the preamble automatically when XeTeX mode is triggered. In the end the only thing that did the job was modifying a local copy of the .cls, which is not too bad actually. However, given the peculiarity of fontspec with a lot of font-affecting packages there should be a way to override or customize this kind of behavior (along with passing options to \setXfont) without resorting to modifying classes and/or packages. Other than that I'm quite happy with the way LyX handles XeTeX.
Thanks for the tips!
