Thank you for the response.

I agree with what you say in your comment.

And some of these things (problems with my proposal) stuck out at me as I was writing this up. But I think this goes a long way to laying this concept of the general color font toggle to rest. 

_(More specifically: this seems conclusive to me regarding a whole-font level of selection mechanism, as opposed to a font-table level of selection, which I am not going to pursue at this time... And which this discussion is also critical of.)_

I think this issue is resolved/can be closed.


> I don't think you've motivated the reason for this change.

I concede the technical case is weak for my suggestion in this issue.

For the record, _my motivation_ was this: I personally thought this suggestion might be a good idea for the property (before this discussion), and I was also trying to address some prior comments in other issues that suggested the same thing. I never felt those comments were resolved.

This whole issue, basically: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/352

But I do now feel like this issue, #2304 lays out the technical case better for a general (whole-font-selection, not table-selection) color font toggle, and contains a clear discussion as to why that's not a good idea, which I hope can lay that suggestion to rest and/or help build consensus along the way.
