What about every other value? Wouldn't it be great to be able to declare "variables" at the top of a stylesheet and reference them where needed. Color schemes are the example that spring to mind.

The way that CSS handles this is to have one invocation of the font and
multiple selectors on the left hand side of the rule.   I.E. you assign
elements to properties, not so much properties to elements.

However, I would have reservations about a page that used more than two
font-faces, or otherwise used large numbers of different attribute
combinations.
