Already supported by !important rules (although getting enough selector
specificity may be a problem when trying to cancel an unknown style sheet).

This requires a minimum font size attribute.  That is actually needed
for a large proportion of commercial web pages even from relatively main
stream organisations.  I started disabling designer font sizes some time
ago because of excessive use of small sizes, although some pages then
become unreadable because of overlaps.

User's already have some of these capabilities, but only the truly 
computer literate know it.  They do provide a problem for any 
designer who wants to compensate, though, as even a supports or all
or nothing rule is likely to consider the features to be working
in the browser.
