@jfkthame I would prefer to discuss properties (rather than @font-face descriptors) in a separate issue, as it has rather different implications and considerations than an @font-face descriptor. Also for the record, I don't think it's a good idea. Where to place the ascent/descent metrics is very font-dependent, and applying numbers fine-tuned to one font to another is liable to cause overlapping text. As for handling line-gaps and switching out how we measure the height of text, that's a css-inline issue, not a font issue, and is being handled there.
