No, you're not, and it's my turn to be sorry for adding confusion by
referring only to text magnification and forgetting "all lengths". But,
you see, the font-size property already provides for magnification of
all lengths. All measurements can be specified in ems, and when so
specified will be correspondingly magnified with a single font-size
change.
