Thinking about this a little more, I don't think we should add
'small-caps' to the 'font-synthesis' property. The CSS Fonts spec
defines *required* fallback behavior when 'font-variant' is set to
'small-caps' and the font lacks small caps glyphs. This is different
from the way font selection works for the synthetic bold and italic
cases, those are basically *optional* features added by the user agent.
