I wish we were aiming for defining intended arc minutes in the eye. (Amin or arcm anyone?) But we are not looking at trying to calculate that and especially not responsively. So we are arriving at a best guess through assumed reader distance + reproduced scale. The fact that we are working to what is ultimately experienced in arc minutes in a such an oblique way seems like a big part of the reason discrepancies in terminology and definition are making progress hard. My comment is I admit a bit too casual. But I don’t like the idea of settling for pixel or reproduced size definitions that don’t include the lived reading experience except by implication.
