I think that was very dismissive. Technically speaking, if the font has
the proper numeric weight value, then it is not broken, but I need to
learn how to use that in away that does not break other fonts. Special
casing "Bold Regular" is not an option, what about "Bold Roman", "Bold
Book", "Bold Medium" etc.
