Alright, that makes sense.

Except that no application or selection mechanism that I can think of is
set up to handle that case...

So I'm guessing that means it will be quite a while before I even need to
worry about it.

Variations are continuous along one or more axes. So you show something
like a slider for each axis, and let the user choose the variation
value. Typically you get no more than 2-3 axes per font.
