The table of values is based on how the *existing* behavior of
bolder/lighter would work for a family with 100/400/700/900 weights. 
For that family '300 bolder lighter' would be a roundtrip using either
the old definition or the new one.

After the change, bolder/lighter would be a simple mapping independent
of a given family.
