_Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa._

The specification which introduced the term "descriptor" used it a tone of times and never once defined it.

[Web Fonts
W3C Working Draft 21-July-1997](https://www.w3.org/TR/WD-font-970721#fontdesc)

But hey, [CSS1 was pretty hazy about properties](https://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1-961217#css1-properties) too:

> Style sheets influence the presentation of documents by assigning values to style properties. This section lists the defined style properties, and their corresponding list of possible values, of CSS1.
