There seem to me to be two entangled unknowns making progress difficult:

* an unknown on the design side (quite apart from the present issue, calibrating `opsz` in a variable font is not settled science, as evidenced by significantly different approaches by type designers);
* and an unknown on the device side, with type designers unable to simulate how their type will look on various devices (apart from those they own).

The proposal by @fantasai, simple `px` and `pt` keywords to avoid the media-sensitive recalibration initiated by Apple, is a very good step forward. I fully support it even if no other inheritable opsz scale adjustments become incorporated into CSS.
