@litherum that seems to tie nicely to the existing Font Loading API 
and also a good way to set fallback customization per font, but 
doesn't give the opportunity to customize per fall-back (as outlined 
by @aaaxx above). I wonder if there might be a way to combine those 
approaches. I recognize that this is a greater length than many will 
go, but if we're going to propose a change we may as well see how 
thorough we can be!

What I like about this approach is that it puts this control right in 
the same place where `font-display` behavior is set. 

A downside to this is that it can only be utilized if you have control
 over the `@font-face` block itself, but that's solvable on the 
platform side if they choose to do so (and the Typekit crew would 
likely do something pretty nifty with it).
