Here's a use case for non-scaling stroke, a fine idea...

I just demoed that in our map editor.  I didn't actually point the
feature out, but it has a non-scaling stroke.  It works by by
resetting the stroke width in the css style of the base map group
after each zoom.

A nice feature, it does look good, it would be fine if it was automatic.

At the dawn of time we experimented with the idea of specifying that a
zero stroke width would be a non scaling stroke of width one, but it
failed to impress everyone.  This would be better, I scale the strokes
on the sit display to always be 1.5px (in screen coordinates) because
it looks best for the application.
