I had something like this in mind as well.  Ie. more like BCP 47 
language tags that need to be broken down and understood.  Also, the 
current option in format() that multiple values can be passed can be 
used to pass the grandfathered existing keywords for older clients.  
Eg. format("ot-cff", "opentype").  Where opentype is the old tag and 
"ot-cff" new one.
