From a visual point of view, if folks have spent time putting horizontal and vertical vectors in expected integer positions – I'm occasionally known to be that tweaky ;) – then they will start going a little blurry as they shift over fractional pixels. I'm not sure how critical/obvious that would be without giving it a test, but I don't think a loss of 1 unit height/width out of 55 units in itself would be noticed. I'm more worried about other non-visual side effects, e.g. will this have effects on toolbar icon spacing, toolbar heights, frame thickness?
