Using `calc()` may be enough for weight / width variations but I can 
easily foresee a use case where a variation axis of a font might be 
e.g. text size dependent (for example, size changes might trigger the 
variations of stem widths / serif size [similar to optical size design
 variations], etc.). If the text size itself can be part of the 
responsive design, we need to make sure that the variations can also 
be text size-specific. 
[I think we need to spend some time thinking through the use cases 
before we can declare we have a solution that would be sufficient for 
all use cases.]
