In an effort to not let this one drop off the radar screen - what I'd like us to review and confirm is that the current draft of font variation support can satisfy the following (see previous examples) use cases:
1. Responsive layouts, where e.g. changes in window size can immediately be reflected in font variation (weight / width) changes - calc() may be sufficient for this.
2. Responsive layout with border conditions (where e.g. a variation is to be applied only within a range of width values) - @media combined with calc() may be enough to solve this, but I am not sure if the conditions can be nested - e.g. when media query is used to change the layout, such as # of columns, column width, etc., and then we need to determine font variations settings, e.g. based on the applied column width.
3. Ability to enable interactive font variations where controls for certain variation features may be desirable to expose to a user (see Buffalo Gal example, where a number of variation features could be considered as a style choice).
