workflow question, opentype related

I need help..
I am aware of how to do optical scaling to make different weights using MM based work-flow. But how to make open-type font that would include different masters for different pt sizes. As I want to refine 4tp, 5pt, 6pt, 7pt, etc. I guess it has to do something with wrapping up multiple fonts and some open-type coding, is it so?

So, some help on this would be highly appreciated.
Links or key words for searching would do too.

There’s a ‘size’ feature, but AFAIK it is not supported by any software. If this is true, I don’t think it’s a good idea to put all your optical variants into one single file.

A better approach would be to use different fonts named properly, as Adobe does.
