A little odd, but understood. But then "We've gotten requests to use these three fonts on the Web" should surely be met with "No, we don't want you to do that so we hid them" not "here is the CSS to do just that".

On a more detailed note, it is clear what happens with a browser that does not understand the new generic name. However, what happens if the browser _does_ understand, say, `system-ui-rounded` but that doesn't translate to a suitable font on the platform. Should it

a) be skipped over, to the next font in the list, or
b) fall back to `system-ui` which is kind of the super-family?
