You are plain wrong about this. KDE is not optimized for any DPI value, 
properly programmed applications can handle any DPI value (and almost all KDE 
application can).

Yes, the -dpi setting actually belong to the configuration file of the X 
server. Sadly, setting this up is not easy for CRTs but only for TFTs. 
Probably many monitors are closer to 75dpi than to 100dpi.
But if that makes to you happier: users of other system mostly don't even know 
that such a setting even exists ;)
