Now that you mention it, a "typical users distance from display"  
could be a very nice Media Query to have. In combination with width,  
height and aspect-ratio, this would very well support me in styling  
Web documents for desktop, mobile, TV and even billboards.

Static values for min, max and average would be excellent.
