> I would argue that full-size-kana itself is just a bad transformation, regardless of whether it's for visual or screen reader. I myself have found it's hard to tell the real pronunciation when I read a Japanese book with this transformation.

Sure, but that's the entire point: when the text is too small, some authors do this anyway, but if they do it in the source document, the correct pronunciation is lost. This transform is not an invitation to use large kana where small kana should be used. The whole point is that if large kana is going to be displayed, authors should be able to still use small kana in the document.
