Utopia with true small caps on italic versions

Utopia is a wonderful typeface, as Slimbach's use to be. But there is just a standard version so far. And this version does not have true small caps included in their italic versions.

The texts I primarily work with are law-related, with dozens of accronymous, many numbers related to laws, dates and sections. So, true small caps are mandatory. Oldstyle numeration and case-related punctuation are also desirable. I really cannot understand why a family is made with SC just on non-italic versions.

Does anybody would suggest a similar typeface with a complete set of small caps? I made a research and found some near what I'm looking for: FF Meta Serif, OurType Fresco Serif, Type-Together Karmina. Scala Pro and Proforma are also interesting.

Anyway, I'd prefer to purchase an Utopia Pro... if there were one! No other contemporary typeface has a so clear, regular color as Utopia.

Besides this, I'd like to see an improved kerning in a future Utopia Pro. Some pairs (like BA, DI, AC, AÇ, 11 and 00) are poorly kerned. Maybe Adobe could made us a good surprise some day.

Kepler is another outstand Slimbach's, but I see it as very much old-fashioned for the project I'm developing. Anyway, it's a very good indication and I got somewhat surprised not to see Kepler used in a larger way.

How about Warnock? Chaparral and Minion also have true small caps in itals, and Minion would be very nice for legal text.
