As a non-UA developer spectating since the beginning of this thread, my take
on what you're asking for is it would be something destined to be misused to
possibly the same widespread degree that happened when web stylists
discovered that the CSS spec writers had given them the irrelevantly relative
px unit. Before CSS, web designers were unable to make text more than two
sizes smaller than the web user's default, which when they went that far,
which was more often than not, left contextual sizing all but non-existent.
With CSS, authors could not only make text even smaller, but could completely
disregard user defaults, eliminating all relativity between defaults and
results. I see what you're asking for as yet another back door to turning a
user agent into an author agent, giving authors even more undeserved power to
vex users, and think those responding to you feel similarly.
