1. You cannot reuse `font-family: georgia` like that, because that has been defined as doing only parsing. You may need function syntax, e.g. `font-family(georgia)` or something like that, which is currently reserved for future extension.
2. I don't think we can add this, because it would become an easy fingerprinting vector. I'm not sure whether it is any worse than current situation, e.g. via canvas, though.

For the use-case that fonts may have different sizes, you can probably try [`font-size-adjust` property](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/font-size-adjust) which was designed to address this issue.
