@jpamental: How does a web author know which CSS values to apply 
during loading? During font loading, an installed font must be 
selected, but every platform on the web has a different set of fonts 
installed (indeed, even the same font may have different metrics on 
different platforms). If the goal is to make the installed font better
 match the web font, how does a web author do this when she has no 
idea which installed font is used or what its metrics are?
