I think it's important to maintain consistency with how static web fonts behave, so I would suggest that when authors specify `font-style: italic` with a variable font, it should simply set the `ital` axis to 1. That way you would have the maximum compatibility with non-variable and fallback fonts. And as @litherum points out, authors already have access to set things more specifically via `font-variation-settings`. (thanks @svgeesus for looping me in!)
