The numbers are expected to be semantically consistent from font to 
font (meaning: weight 265 in one font should "match" weight 265 in 
another font, for some definition of "match"). Therefore, the numbers 
have meaning in their own right.

The range extents that a given font supports, though, are arbitrary.

CSS is not currently in the business of letting web authors make up 
their own grammar for existing properties. I believe this is one of 
the pursuits of the Houdini WG, but that work isn't ready for 
primetime yet.
