@litherum I expect ital continuous axes to become common, actually. I don't think it's acceptable to say "this will always be uncommon so we shouldn't support it". 

The reason it is important to provide support for selecting any italic angle via font-style is that `@font-face` family composition allows for a set of static fonts to be used to sample the design space, and font-variation-settings isn't available then
