I think most accept that both are bad.  One should use relative sizes.
My impression, though, is that you are really a prsentatationalist with
a thing against software from commercial organisations (excepting
consortia of commercial organisations), otherwise you would he using
PDF, which *is* intended for reproducible rendering.

Pages shouldn't break when the size is maximised and locked by the
user, although most non-trivial designs will break.

(Designers have a particular problem, in that they tend to have
good eyesight and tend to select excessively small fonts.)

This is a pure presentationalist position.
