upsuper has just created a new issue for 

== [css-fonts] All CSS-wide keywords should be excluded from 
<family-name> type ==
The spec currently says:
> Font family names that happen to be the same as a keyword value 
(`inherit`, `serif`, `sans-serif`, `monospace`, `fantasy`, and 
`cursive`) must be quoted to prevent confusion with the keywords with 
the same names. The keywords `initial` and `default` are reserved for 
future use and must also be quoted when used as font names. UAs must 
not consider these keywords as matching the `<family-name>` type.

It excludes `inherit` and `initial`, but does not excludes other 
CSS-wide keywords, e.g. `unset`. It should probably say that any 
CSS-wide keywords should not be matched as `<family-name>` type.
