We discussed this issue in the clreq [meeting](https://www.w3.org/2020/03/05-clreq-minutes.html#t01) yesterday. Here's a summary:

Since Chinese have multiple major calligraphy styles, and Kai is only one of them, mapping cursive to Kai is not perfect. The biggest issue is that Kai does not match most cursive Western fonts (aesthetically).

However, the clreq editors still think the current status a useful compromise. In the future, if the CSSWG accepts new generic font families (whether in the form of a registry or not), we think a new generic font family for Kai in CSS would be useful.
