Was doing document forensics with Jeanne, and in discussion got to thinking
about 1.4.1

1.4.1 Basic text formatting (Globally): The user can globally set all of
the following characteristics of visually rendered text content: (Level A)
* Text scale with preserved size distinctions (e.g. keeping headings
proportional to main font)
* Text color and background color, choosing from all platform color options
* Font family, choosing from all installed fonts
* Line spacing, choosing from a range with at least three values

I don't believe any browser allows (provides a UI to easily set) except via
CSS for
* Line spacing, choosing from a range with at least three values

the other 3 bullets have UI for easily setting these in desktop browsers.
the mobile browsers I checked, Android and Chrome (Android), only allow
font size change and zoom override.

Propose removing the last bullet from 1.4.1
