Yes, that would add one line:

   .dropcap {
      exclude-level: 0.5;
      shape-margin: 0.2em; 
      margin-top: -0.2em;

Content-specific? The style sheet above can be applied any content in
English, Greek, Russian -- any bicameral script. (Any other script,
too, it just raises the cap(s) slightly)

In your example, you basiscally outline the 'y' in the style sheet:

      wrap-flow: right;
      shape-outside: polygon(0px,0px 280px,0px 220px,125px 0px,125px);

Are there any security implications of outlining the shape of glyphs
from the content in the style sheet?

In any case, I request that the CSS WG ask authors -- including fora
beyond www-style -- what kind of code they prefer to write.
