The question is this: if a type user just typed fußball and makes that word smallcaps, would he/she probably want the ß to be converted to the smallcap eszett, or to (I think more conventional) smallcap ss. And if the latter is the case, how would I make the smallcap eszett accesible?

I like the idea of options, but it’s unlikely I will be providing optional Dresden/Frankfurt ß glyphs in a stylistic set any time soon.

The Dresden is a large parameter space that encompasses your design. So if anything, your design is a subform of the Dresden, just like my Zürich. (Though unlike the Zürich, «Orangeville» has been in widespread use since the earliest beginnings.)
