I assume the intention is to map these to the registered Variation Axis Tags, described on https://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/fvar.htm

So "Style" would be matching to 'slnt' or 'ital'?
"Weight" matching to 'wght'?
"Stretch" matching to 'wdth'?

So that would mean percentage values can be larger than 100%, and 100% would take on the same meaning as in this part of the OpenType spec, referring to "whatever the font designer considers “normal” for that font design".

"Weight" taking values from 1 to 1000, where the normal value would be 400, according to OpenType.

How do we map "Style"?
