I started investigating this more, and I have to say that I've changed my mind. The low-level property is used when the web author has a priori knowledge of what features the font supports, so browsers shouldn't get in their way by interpreting `font-feature-settings` to turn off synthesis. Browsers are currently discouraged (disallowed?) from inspecting the 4-character-codes passed to `font-feature-settings` in order to perform synthesis. Because the concepts of synthesis and `font-feature-settings` are divorced, in this case, the addition of `font-feature-settings` shouldn't have any affect on synthesis.
