I  like this overall and think this makes sense, if the dpi issue can be
resolved in an intelligent place and manner. Though moving dpi to the
RANDR applet, I am not entirely sure about, I can see it as being a
valid solution.

The Font Zoom option idea would make sense perhaps adding it on the main
Fonts tab, beneath document fonts? Make it a percentage though, with the
default being 100%, like how windows does in the advanced screen
options, 100% normal, 125% large font etc.
