(typed my comment too slowly to be recorded in the minutes, so I'm reposting here)

Besides concerns about use cases, I'm also a bit concerned that we are introducing a mechanism to override that is so different than the cascade and completely breaks with reordering. It's two different mental models for doing very similar things, which is a usability antipattern. I was wondering if we can somehow "match" the defined `@font-face` (or other) rule and override it in a more cascade-like manner.
