How does one reference a font descriptor to use the selected font?

From the 'Robson Celtic' example in the spec, it seems you use the name
specified by the 'font-family' descriptor.  However, in the example under
15.3.9, all the font descriptors have the same font family name.  There
doesn't seem to be anything that allows you to call upon a particular font
mapped from a specific font-descriptor.
