[Here is another example where variations for responsive layout might 
come vary 
handy.](http://www.typosansplomb.com/ResponsiveInterpolation/) 
The example itself uses interpolation (not a real variation font), but
 it is a very nice demo of a specific feature where certain properties
 of a typeface can be made variable, which would result in a 
controlled transition between low and high contrast designs that are 
applied within a specific, pre-determined width range. As a default 
setting, the low-contrast face is rendered when the window width <= 
900, and the variation between low-contrast and high-contrast design 
is applied when the width increases to 1500.
Something like this can e.g. be implemented with the variation axis 
defined as "contrast" (again, outside of a traditional, well-known set
 of variation axes).
