Could you explain this further? Note that he very clearly wants to keep the 
"default font dpi" separate from the "real dpi", so that apps that need to 
know such things can still be properly calibrated.

I don't see such a proposal as a bad hack at all - it matches the reality of 
how our GUIs work (i.e. widgets, icons, etc. are not completely flexible in 
their sizing), at least until everthing is turned into vectors (hopefully 
in the next few years...).
