Override text style just as you override components

I have a set of text styles that I use across my app and website, but I need exceptions here and there: like tabular/non-tabular digits.

Creating a separate style for the tabular digits (that I use in data tables, charts and certain widgets) would double my text styles and clutter the design library.

The same applies to underline.

Could it be possible to create 1 style and remember its overrides? For instance, ‘Body’ + ‘Tabular digits’, where ‘Body’ is the text style and ‘Tabular digits’ is the override.

This would allow for a great deal of versatility without breaking links to the design library you use.
