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

== [css-fonts] is it allowed for generic families like system-ui to be overridden by @font-face? ==
@kojiishi and I had a discussion about this topic in https://crbug.com/1021568.

The core question is, should the following css rule

```css
@font-face {
    font-family: system-ui;
    src: local("Arial");
}
```
to override the generic font family of `system-ui`.

I've read chapters about generic font families and font-face multiple times, but can't get a  clear answer.

Thanks!
