I use 16px for body text in all viewports. Only in some cases the text
sizes are different in some viewports for the same case. For the WUI
(IPFire Admin Interface) I'm going to use 14px as the default size.

If I convert rem into px later on based your finished pages and I get the
px size back I defined than I'm happy :) I leave the decision to you. I
can't use rem in Sketch. So I'll provide always px.

Use the way which do you think works better :)

I suggest the common fallback. I can't remember a case where the webfont
was not able to load.

I prefer names as provided in Zeplin. They are named how they look and not
for what they are planed to use. It avoids confusion in cases like: A blue
is named "info-blue" and later on it should be used for a donut-chart
fragment as well. "info-blue" doesn't fit anymore.
