[css-fonts] Use CSS value definition syntax to define <family-name> and <generic-family>

Sebastian Zartner-3
In https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2009Apr/0351.html Bert Bos defined <family-name> and <generic-family> using CSS value definition syntax:
<generic-family> = serif | sans-serif | cursive | fantasy | monospace
<family-name> = STRING | IDENT+
Though it seems this syntax was never picked up by the spec. Instead the accepted values are currently only described in words.

So, while the syntax above may not be totally correct yet, I suggest to add definitions in value definition syntax for those two values.
