I agree that mapping Kai to cursive is oversimplified, but if the mapping is removed, there will be no way to use Kai by using a generic font family until the new generic font family is added, and since most browsers has implemented the mapping, there may be compat issues. It would be useful if we can analyze the usage on the Web used before removing the mapping.


(You can see the rendered fonts in various browsers [here](https://xfq.github.io/testing/i18n-personal-tests/generic-font-families.html). A CSS [library](https://github.com/ethantw/Han/blob/master/src/sass/typography/ff/_kaiti.scss) seems to be using this mapping too.)
