I think this is why your OP proposal is good. But since we need to support optical size in a simple way, I believe we need to 

1. redefine the unit of opsz, AND 
2. add a 2nd oppt axis (same deltas, very small filesize impact to have both opsz and oppt in the same font), AND 
3. allow the CSS font-optical-sizing property to have numerical values, are all needed.

Perhaps for (1) it needs to be redefined from Typographic Points to CSS Points, not CSS Pixels.
