Using the ITU radio spectrum as an inspiration, this should be 
extended to `super-*`, `extremely-*` and `tremendously-*` (and 
`very-*` would of course be an alias to `extra-*`). 😜

I wonder, though, why there’re no `70.7%` and `141%` √2 presets (as 
well as `84.1%`, `119%` and so on). Keywords for irrational values are
 much more useful than those for simple rational values.

As far as I know, Opentype fonts may also provide default and 
localized names for indexed features such as `ss01`, but 
[`@font-feature-values`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-3/#font-feature-values)
 does not provide means to access them yet. Anyhow, it’s probably a 
good idea to make css-fonts work similar in both cases.
