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

ISTM that adding `nastaliq` as a generic font-family would not be much different from adding further names associated with particular styles of Latin typeface, which authors could reasonably want to use in order to get a certain "look" without knowing the exact names of available fonts. Are we prepared for `font-family: humanist` or `antiqua` or `egyptian` or `fraktur`? And there are probably equivalent (but quite separate) type design traditions in other scripts that would have an equal claim for recognition in CSS. I don't think we should start down this path.
