litherum has just created a new issue for 

== [css-fonts-4] Consider renaming "variation fonts" with "variable 
fonts" ==
The official name for OpenType variation fonts are "variable fonts." 
However, TrueType used (uses?) the term "variation" instead.

"Variation" may be confusing because it is very similar to "Variant" 
which is used in the font-variant properties, which have nothing to do
 with variations.

"Variable" may be confusing because CSS Variables already exist and 
are completely unrelated.
