`font-width` sounds as if you could switch between fixed/monospaced 
and variable/proportional/dynamic with it. It’s also easily associated
 with half-width sinograms etc. as in [`font-variant-east-asian: 
<east-asian-width-values>`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-3/#font-variant-east-asian-prop)
 (OTF `fwid` and `pwid`, not `hwid`, `twid` or `qwid`) and 
[`text-transform: 
full-width`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-3/#text-transform-property).
