I don't think we should be specifying exactly how these work. The user preferences of letting some fonts behave slightly differently is a user/browser choice, and shouldn't be necessarily limited to the facilities the CSS spec spells out. Competitive advantage isn't necessarily required to fit within the framework of standardization. Perhaps the spec could hint that this sort of processing is possible, but it shouldn't prescribe exactly how to best suit your user's preferences.
