Summary of Issue: large scale text for CJK 
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In "large scale (text)", it reads "... font size that would yield equivalent stroke width for Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) fonts". For Japanese, the stroke width differs according to the font face, also between Kanji and Hiragana/Katakana. And the stroke width is not proportional to the font size.

Proposed Change:
We can't determine the large scale text for Japanese characters with this definition. Please tell us how to find appropriate font size for Japanese. To be testable, we have to present the font sizes like "18 point or 14 point bold" for Japanese authors.
