Re: [csswg-drafts] [mediaqueries-4 ] Deprecate 'speech' media type as well? (#1751)

**/!\ Please note that I won't be able to attend the discussion scheduled about this during the F2F.**

The gist of my thoughts on this is that the speech media type is not something that should exist, because there is no reason not to use the speech properties on elements all the time. In the same way we don't have a media query that's `(has-a-display)` on which we condition setting `display:grid` on some elements. It's self-obvious that a browser that doesn't have a display will not need to honor `display:grid` if it is not expected to have an effect for its output.

People who rely on assistive technologies do not want to disclose that, and browsers like Microsoft Edge have a "read-aloud" feature that users can activate on any piece of text on any page, and would benefit from annotation about how to pronounce the text in a nice-to-hear way.

If the discussion results in removing the display type, sounds good, but if the discussion tilts the other way, I would like to ask to re-discuss this at a further date, for instance next Wednesday.
