Yes.

I agree, both Adams's \Var[lf] and Idris's \Var[up] is better then my 
ns. I prefer 'lf', since a) it is related to figures, b) 'up' can be mix 
up with upshape/slanted.

What about:
light \lf
medium \mf
semibold \sf
bold \bf
lightitalic \li
italic \it
semibold italic \si
bold italic \bi
It is more intuitive, is't it?

I checked if they have not been occupied yet and at least in en 
interface it is OK.
