We would never have shipped CSS1 if we had continued tweaking it until it attained some ever-receding perfection.

I'm also far from convinced that changing the spec in a direction that is now what is implemented, just because of a statement that used to be in CSS 1 and 2, is the right thing to do. And since the discussion here does not seem close to resolution, holding back Fonts 3 because of it is a bad idea.

Fonts 4 is the current active spec (for example, browsers now implement `font-weight` as a number 1 to 999, like Fonts 4 says, not as an enumeration 100, 200 etc like Fonts 3 says.

Fonts 3 is the first full definition of webfonts. Webfonts are now used by around 75% of the top 10,000 websites. It is way past time for Fonts 3 to become a W3C Recommendation.
