That doesn't favour the user, as licences are, by definition, documents
that give permissions (although many software licenses actually attempt
to be contracts that take away some permissions as well).

7 point, on a typical screen, is the result of the browser bottoming
out the font size.  It corresponds to 1970s dot matrix quality or 
worse, and shrinking beyond that size isn't possible whilst retaining
the general shape of Latin alphabet characters.  In other words, it
typically represents the result of an attempt to specify an even smaller
font size!
