We should never have had `<generic-family>: serif | sans-serif | cursive | fantasy | monospace` but rather  something like:

```` ebnf
<generic-family>: <ends> || <stem> || <body> || <eyes> || <form> || <tool> || <mood>
<ends>: serif | sans-serif | slab-serif | egyptienne | swash | flourish | flat
<stem>: antiqua | grotesque | roman | equal | up-stroke | down-stroke | curved | straight | narrow | thick | bulky | outline | hollow | shadow | tall | petite 
<body>: monospace | fixed-width | half-width | full-width | proportional | flexible 
<eyes>: open | closed | filled | small | large | square | round 
<form>: cursive | current | connected | fluid | calligraphic | artistic | rounded | squared | comic | typeset | uncial | broken | blackletter | segmented | geometric | historic | futuristic | fancy | stiff | masculine | feminine | poster | headline | pictographic 
<tool>: nib | pen | pencil | brush | chalk | crayon | stencil | stamp | stylus | typewriter | lcd | chisel | sticker | pixel | finger | foot | paw | body 
<mood>: neutral | angry | soft | sweet | romantic | careful | aggressive | loud | playful | funny | sarcastic | ironic | depressive | happy | wild | tame | serious | mechanic | shocked | frightened | dreamy | tired | explicit | poetic | childish
