I agree that this is useful functionality (and also that it should be scoped for CSS4 Fonts) and also thatit is useful to start looking at it now - its fine to have a stable specification being readied for Candidate rec and also an experimental version developed in parallel.

This could be an actual specification, or it could be a (set of) wiki pages collecting together use cases, requirements, examples, and thoughts on syntax.
