Right. There's no need to continue to follow the W3C's own excellent advice
<http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/font-size>:

Good usage of CSS's font properties

Here are a few basic rules that one should follow in order to create Web
pages that are easy (enough) to read, using CSS's font properties.
Size: respect the users' preferences, avoid small size for content

    * As a base font size for a document, 1em (or 100%) is equivalent to
setting the font size to the user's preference. Use this as a basis for your
font sizes, and avoid setting a smaller base font size
    * Avoid sizes in em smaller than 1em for text body, except maybe for
copyright statements or other kinds of "fine print."
