I wonder whether there's much preexisting use of the `cusrive` value for Arabic script content, and if so, whether authors of pages that use that have been expecting a nastiliq font already, or something else.

Another consideration: when nasatilq text contains bits of text in non Arabic scripts, what sort of fonts do they typically use? Certainly authors could select and style these separately, but if they don't it's interesting to know whether a cursive Latin / Chinese / ??? font would generally be a good match or not.

Relatedly, If we end up not using `cursive` and minting a new keyword, we should also give some thoughts to what sort of fonts that keyword ought to be mapping to for non-Arabic text.
