Yes, current _desktop_ font architectures don't. But the current web
font architecture is more flexible, I think. That is, inspecting a
rendered DOM and modifying it with Javascript so that nodes are styled
with fonts appropriate to their currently rendered size seem a
possibility. I would hope that CSS4 would provide a clean way to do
that without JS hackishness.
