Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] CSSFontFaceRule does not seem Web compatible

This was no error, it was an intentional "let's fix this better" 
effort by jdaggett years ago that never panned out.  Old 2.1 spec gave
 CSSFontFaceRule a .style property, which worked identically to style 
rules, but jdaggett tried to fix it to just put the valid descriptors 
directly on the CSSFontFaceRule, like we do with other at-rules.

However, no browser ever picked up the change, including Firefox, 
which John was nominally in charge of (for the relevant section). :/  
This needs to be reverted to match reality, unless browsers actually 
think they can change their implementation. (I'm pretty sure Chrome's 
position is that we probably can't.)
