jfkthame has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-fonts-4] §7.2 Feature and variation precedence ignores `font-variant` descriptor ==
See https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-4/#feature-variation-precedence

In CSS Fonts 3, features implied by the `font-variant` descriptor are incorporated at step 2 of the Feature Precedence rules: https://www.w3.org/TR/css-fonts-3/#feature-precedence.

However, in the current draft of Fonts 4, the corresponding section (now Feature and variation precedence) omits any mention of the `font-variant` descriptor (although it still accounts for the `font-variant` property).

Presumably, if the `font-variant` descriptor is intended to work as in Fonts 3, it should be handled in a new step inserted between rules 5 and 6 in the current text.
