The native DPI of one of my laptops is 221 (Sony Vaio P) and the other
is 140 (Vaio Z). Needless to say, 11pt at 96dpi looks fairly uselessly
tiny on both. Assuming 96dpi seems rather the contrary of all the other
design decisions in GNOME 3 - assuming brokenness and accommodating it,
rather than 'doing the right thing' for the long term.
