Good summary. I agree that we need access to both the standard axes 
9weight, width, slant, optical) and also to custom axes (perhaps using
 CSS custom properties, but maybe that needs custom descriptors too?)

One additional benefit of variable fonts for the Web is reduced 
download size. Instead of two or more separate downloads (one for each
 weight) a single font provides a range of weights. So implementers 
more focused on performance than on typographic excellence should 
still be interested in this new capability.
