In 2011, a font-family: -webkit-pictograph was implemented in WebKit 
[1]. However a new "font-family: emoji" value was added in the CSS Fonts 
Module Level 4 spec [3].

I understand there is backward compat concerns about removing features 
but do we agree to add "emoji" as an alias for "-webkit-pictograph", 
similar to what we did in [3] for "system-ui"?
