As for syntax, I think there are a few contestants:

- `system-ui-rounded`: Familiar to authors, yet possibly causing compatibility problems if anyone ever makes a real font with this exact name (for some reason)
- `system-ui(rounded)`: Simple, yet possibly confusing because font family names are strings in every other context
- `env(system-ui-rounded)`: Conceptually pure, but exposes the platform-specific font name to the Web, if this environment variable was used in another context. E.g. `content: env(system-ui-rounded)`.
