  No, cleverly written at best (don't get me started! ;) )

  EXACTLY. Words becomes a lot more readable for me when I use 64pt or larger so I read from my recliner ... but given the size of my screens it would texts less readable. IOW, there's a trade-off there and that also applies to lineheight, and esp. with lineheight it also depends on the context. Many forms of code are easier to work with with a minimal lineheight because that makes it easier to see code organisation (blocks/scopes identified by indentation). So yeah, a user-controllable scale factor could be a good idea, independent from the issue at hand.
  I didn't mention Konsole because AFAIK it doesn't use KTextEditor.
