Crissov has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-fonts] Support for OTF 1.8+ variable fonts ==
[CSS Fonts 4](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts/) should update the 
`font-weight` (`<wght>`), `font-stretch` (`<wdth>`), `font-style` 
(`<ital>`, `<slnt>`) and `font-size` (`<opsz>`) properties, maybe also
  `font-family` (`STAT`), to support arbitrary values in [Opentype 
Variable Fonts (Medium article by 
@tiroj)](https://medium.com/@tiro/https-medium-com-tiro-introducing-opentype-variable-fonts-12ba6cd2369)
 (`fvar`/`gvar` and `CFF2` tables). There may also be a use case to 
access arbitrary (possibly named) axes, e.g. with a new property 
`font-axis` or `font-variable`.

I have no concrete proposal, but note that …

> Members of the Edge team are working with industry partners on a 
formal proposal for support of variable fonts in Cascading Style 
Sheets (CSS) for the Web.
