>> Some font file formats allow font faces to carry multiple localizations of a particular string (e.g. family name or named instance). User agents must recognize and correctly match all of these names independent of the underlying platform localization, system API used, or document encoding.

This originally said that matching was on the US-English localized name, regardless of locale. We got feedback on that and fixed it to allow any localization.

The fuzzy matching (Arial matching Helvetica, Helvetica Neue matching Helvetica, etc) is as you say a lower-level thing that we have no control over.
