🤔 If the main use case for this is to either select a certain explicit stroke thickness or to match up two implicit lengths, _maybe_ itʼs better to be able to specify the stroke thickness as a `<length>`, although I donʼt see how this could be put in a different or child property. 
Kind of relevant then: I once proposed a relative length unit (or two) that would hold the (parent) stroke thickness, with the main use case being `text-underline-width`. 

Intuitively, I would assume `font-weight: 100%` meant that the strokes are so thick that all glyph counters are completely filled. Higher values would make no sense.
