While we're on the subject of font-size-adjust, there has earlier been 
acknowledgement that this property is very Latin-centric, and is 
inadequate as a general mechanism for size adjustments of fonts for 
scripts that do not have an x-height notion equivalent to that of Latin. 
Is anyone interested in discussing ideas for a more general mechanism 
that could be applied to other writing systems?
