Thanks for your continued work on this Mike - your comments all make sense to me. Just one specific thing you asked for comment on:

The question of font-size: 62.5% versus font-size: 10px - this is a good point, and I think that these days it makes very little difference; it used to be that in the old days, using pixel sizes was bad because old IE versions couldn't zoom content sized in this way. But that is a problem of the past, pretty much.
