RE: [CSS21] [css3-values] px and device pixels

I originally raise the issue of 'pixel' definition because many handheld devices are 131dpi, 196dpi, or greater.

It seems funny to me to say that a handheld device should be 96 pixels when there is a capability for more.

I'd suggest to introduce new length unit - physical pixel

Conflicts with use of naked numbers for line-height!

Maybe apx or ap for application px or adjusted px or spx or sp for scaled px.

What exactly is the use case for this?
