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

== [css-fonts-4] local() and variation fonts ==
[Migrated](https://github.com/litherum/csswg-drafts/issues/5) on 
behalf of @kuettel:

While format() is being refined to support variation fonts, e.g. 
format ("woff-variations") or via an additional parameter (see: #4), 
similar consideration should be given to local().

Specifically, one should be able to use locally available variation 
fonts but fallback to downloading the font when the locally available 
font does not support variations. Perhaps via an additional parameter 
as well? e.g. local("full name", "variation"), which then would only 
use "full name" if it was variation ready.
