I know that all, really..... 

my way is to be able set it if somebody need it (work with a lot
desktops different resolutions and dpi changes works for him)

the other problem is difference between gnome dpi and ex. kde dpi
etc.... this is why the same font size do not match with kde etc....

my question is rather why 96 by default ? why not 75 (as it is more
default even if "dcc" module for X do not work and you make a simple
calculations), afaik kde have 75 but not sure how they get it.
