[css-fonts] Named Stylistic Sets

It is possible, in Open Type Format 1.6, to specify human readable names for stylistic sets ‘ss01’ through ‘ss20’ and character variants ‘cv01’ through ‘cv99’. This is done in the ‘uiLabelNameId’ / ‘featUiLabelNameId’ field in the Feature Parameters table.


Should the ‘character-variant()’ and ‘styleset()’ values of the ‘font-variant-alternates’ property be made to accept these?

<feature-value-name> could be pre-populated with such names, which could be overwritten within ‘@font-feature-values’.
