Are we talking about font-variation-settings here? Or the higher-level
 properties? The policy will likely be different for each of them.

font-variation-settings shouldn't scale or bias its arguments because 
it is meant to be an escape hatch for web authors who know exactly 
what they are doing. For everyone else, they should be using the 
high-level properties instead. Ultimately, the usage of 
font-variation-settings should be extremely small. (I only implemented
 it in WebKit because it's simple to implement and it has relatively 
few dependencies on the rest of the engine.)
