Yes, I think we can find a simple generic solution that can handle the
documented use cases [1]. Personally, I would suggest that we do:

  @text-transform german-lowercase { convert: "ẞ" to "ß" }
  @text-transform foo { convert: "abc" to "def" }
  @text-transform foo { convert: "abc" to "def", "ghi" to "jkl" } /* multiple tranformations */
  @text-transform foo { convert: "a-c" to "d-f" } /* ranges, use \- to represent the '-' character */
