But not all text is rendered with that default font size.

I was asking you about how we can get there, IOW which is the
suggested technical plan.
We have today a solution that allows scaling the size of the text in
all of Sugar, so it can adapt to any display. You point out that this
approach has a downside as text whose size is specified in points
won't have the same physical size in different displays.
I'm asking you what do you propose to fix that (doing so in a ticket
and/or feature page may be better).
