Right, but for the distribution I'm currently on (Ubuntu 8.04) only  
the book and bold styles are installed by default (in ttf-dejavu-core,  
the rest being in ttf-dejavu-extra). I'm guessing it's not necessarily  
very common to have more than two weights, especially on mobile  
devices and such.

Yes, linking to a set of required fonts sounds like a good idea.  
(Optionally, there could be a separate variant of the test which just  
checks that a bolder font-weight value doesn't give a lighter font,  
and vice versa.)
