Yay! The current status has disturbed me already. In screen shots showing 
four-letter-word languages, 8pt vs. 10pt doesn't matter so far as the icon is 
mostly larger than the text.

But in more elaborate languages like German where "Undo" is "Rückgängig" and 
"Redo" is "Wiederherstellen", you'll save tremendous amounts of horizontal 
screen real estate.
