Isn't what we're really looking for something that allows us to maintain
the same two objects at the same relative size:
in this case (I suppose) a bitmap background and a block of text? If the
reader needs (or just wants) larger text, he or she probably wants larger
images too...
Scaling text but not images is always going to create a result that's
different to what the designer intended... Well, I suppose if you have
enough monkeys and typewriters you're eventually going to get an
improvement on Hamlet...

Not sure how this could be implemented: I guess you'd have to declare one
object as the "size model" for others?

But, currently, Opera's "scale-everything" approach makes really good sense
for all the real-life cases I can imagine.
