I see, I partly missed the point of Nick’s suggestion.

It prioritizes the angular measure to start based on the idea of being equal to distance, rather than starting from the basis of absolute size.

However, I still do wonder whether it makes sense to lead with that. From what I’ve read so far in the thread, it seems that device makers already do try to set a CSS px unit to absolute sizes that correspond to expected user distance. So, 4/3 px should theoretically already equal 3 arcminutes on a phone, a desktop, and a football-stadium jumbotron.
