> Why should it be reset when none of its values are present in the shorthand? That doesn't make any sense. Just because it starts with the word font doesn't mean that it should be part of the shorthand.

On the other hand, we already have (my italics):

>> Additionally, it is a shorthand for font-size-adjust, font-kerning, and font-language-override, but as these _cannot be specified in the syntax_, it merely resets these to their initial values.

So it certainly seems worthwhile to explicitly state that `font-synthesis` is not set to the initial value by the `font` shorthand.
