For starters, bugs should be filed. There is one Gtk+ bug for high dpi
it got a bit unreadable though.

But I guess it needs some thought. E.g. DPI data cannot be relied upon
(as discussed many times before). I saw another Gtk+ bug on windows
where apparently an application has to notify that it supports high DPI

Agree. Best to give developers high DPI screens (not kidding).
