AmeliaBR has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-fonts] Add a ui-sans-serif keyword to go with ui-serif ==
A follow-up to #4107:

In that issue we agreed to add [`ui-serif`, `ui-monospaced`, and `ui-rounded`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-4/#standard-font-families) to allow access to variants of system fonts other than the standard `system-ui` font.  However, this set of names assumes that `system-ui` is a sans-serif style, which may not always be true.

There should be a `ui-sans-serif` keyword for authors who want to specifically request the system's sans serif style. The `system-ui` keyword would continue to be the primary font used by the system interface, regardless of style. These two keywords might map to the same font; the difference is in intent.
