[csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] Inconsistency between `monospace` and `ui-monospaced` (#4469)

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

== [css-fonts] Inconsistency between `monospace` and `ui-monospaced` ==
The new UI font keywords recently added to Fonts 4 includes [`ui-monospaced`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-4/#ui-monospaced-def) (note the "d" at the end). In contrast, the existing generic keyword is `monospace` (no "d").

There is already lots of potential for authoring confusion over whether to include the "d" at the end of `monospace` or not, because both terms are used interchangeably in typography (monospace font or monospaced font). I don't think it is helpful to have two keywords in CSS with different grammatical inflections, it will make it that much harder to remember which version is correct.
