I'm not *entirely* opposed to changing Firefox's implementation -- ours hasn't been preffed on by default yet, and we [spun up & landed a rename patch for "-thickness"](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1567282) in a matter of hours last week. :)  But I do agree there should be a high-ish bar for performing another rename.

I do share @AmeliaBR's concern that `font-weight` has an entirely different category of values, which makes the analogy/muscle-memory more confusing, IMO.  And to me, "weight" sounds like a fuzzy "suggestion", and less like a pixel-precise measurement (perhaps because I'm used to font-weight where that's basically what it is).
