Isn't this an issue that can be solved by font authors and platform 

If someone makes a new font called "Vulgaris Neue" with several weights 
and in condensed and expanded versions they should have no problem 
keeping all these faces within the same family if they so choose.

On the other hand, if someone puts every face in a different family, 
it's not clear why CSS should be responsible for doing the heavy lifting 
to try and straighten everything out.
