I agree that this is a confusing term and that font-width would be a 
much more accurate term. Especially as OT 1.8 Variable Font support 
increases, a logical name will be crucial for understanding what this 
property actually does. It refers to the width of a font and does not 
refer to mechanically stretching a font, therefore font-width is much 
more accurate. Please change the name to font-width.
