Issue 669453: [Meta] Support for OpenType Variable Fonts

Reported by drott@chromium.org, Nov 29 2016 Project Member

Issue description

Meta bug to track support for OpenType variable fonts in Chrome.

Background Reading on the OpenType variable fonts concept:
https://medium.com/@tiro/https-medium-com-tiro-introducing-opentype-variable-fonts-12ba6cd2369#.pgle2nu13

Spec References:
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts-4/ (with focus on the chapters that reference OpenType variable fonts)
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Typography/OpenTypeSpecification.aspx

OpenType variable fonts integration in the layout engine affects at least the following aspects:

1) Axis value assignments using the font-variation-settings property.
2) Integration of variable fonts axis parameters into the font shaping process and layout operations.
3) Integration into font matching for:
   * Matching based on canonical scalable axes such as width or weight or optical sizing.
   * Matching named instances
4) Feature resolution of spelled out CSS properties, and font-feature-settings and font-variation-settings.
5) ...  We will add more integration aspects as we go along, tracked in the sub-bugs.
