Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] Specify what generic font family maps to nastaliq (#4397)

> So are we positive to accept language/script/writing-system specific generic font families?

Personally, I am not at all positive about that. It substantially changes the meaning of "generic" font families, in a direction that I think we'd come to regret.

What I am positive about is browsers using script/language/region information to inform their mapping of the existing generic keywords to appropriate available fonts, so that (for example) `serif` might map to a Naskh face for Arabic-script characters in content where `lang=ar`, but a Nastaliq one when `lang=ur`.
