It seems to me that the font options that are face-dependent (like selecting
particular alternates) should be in the @font-face rule, since only there
can you associate options with a particular face. Font options that are
face-independent (i.e., font options that be applied correctly even without
knowing in advance which face will be used, like small-caps) should be
regular CSS properties.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
