There are extra complications to take into account, mind. For 
instance, what if a user has set their OS resolution to something 
other than factory settings? Should physical units ignore that (e.g. 
1cm always means 1cm, regardless of however the user set up their 
environment)? What about zoom factors? What about set-top boxes which 
may have no direct way of knowing physical size of the TV/screen 
they're connected to?
