Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts-4] [varfont] Italic & Oblique benefit from not including a <number> (#519)

> fonts can now be made with arbitrary type-designer-controlled slant, so why munge other fonts...

Yes, if the fallback font happens to be a variable font. But we can't guarantee that, and the CSS spec needs to give guidance on what to do when an oblique font is requested (with a given angle) and no variable font with a `slnt` axis is in the font stack, so it has to be synthesized.

(Note that CSS also allows a stylesheet to disallow fake bold, fake italic, and now fake smallcaps too).
