I did suggest `rounded-sans` but not exactly in that context. What I was suggesting was to have generics that are subcategories of other generics, e.g. `rounded-sans`, `slab-serif` etc. Possibly even a function with keyword traits e.g. `generic(sans-serif rounded)` or `generic(old-style serif)` etc, which could fallback to fewer keywords instead of just whatever's next on the stack.
