drott has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-fonts-4] Animation type font-weight, discrete? ==
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-4/#font-weight-prop describes the animation type as "discrete". What does this mean and what is the intended behavior?

Does it refer to a behavior as defined in https://drafts.csswg.org/css-transitions/#animtype-font-weight, or is the intention to animate as https://drafts.csswg.org/css-transitions/#animtype-integer? Or should this rather be animated as <number>, same as stretch?

In my opinion, at least implementing this as discrete jumps from 100, 200, ..., 900 seems odd for variable fonts, which would make it necessary to use font-variation-settings to achieve a smooth weight animation.
