Does "all characters" mean that if I set the font-variant-position
property on the HTML body element that rendering is held up until you
get to a glyph that's not available as a superscript or to the end of
the document?

(it's a crazy case, although doing the same sort of thing for small caps
is not so crazy when you consider legal documents)
