Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] Propose adding lang as a font-face descriptor (#1744)

For cases where language variants are within a font file, CSS already requires looking up the correct variant using the element's content language. In cases where the font should switch, the :lang() selector can do this already:

```
[lang]:lang(a) { font-family: Font For Language A, fallback for A, etc; }
[lang]:lang(b) { font-family: Font For Language B, fallback for B, etc; }
```

The CSSWG believes this should be an adequate solution, so the suggestion is to close this issue as wontfix. Let us know if there's anything we missed and should reconsider.
