I don't think you can get this to work in the general case anyway; afaik there's no rule that says "weight 800 has the same thickness as 400 at twice the size"... Nor does 50% of the parent's font weight necessarily mean half its stroke thickness. The numbers are just an arbitrary per-font scale.

(Also for small-caps, there's no rule for what size the synthesized small caps should be wrt full caps, so that's not even possible cross-platform.)
