Though I agree that this might make a few adjustments easier right now we 
should not ignore the reasons why some values are are noted as flexible 

Fact is that users use dofferent font sizes. Various reasons for that, one 
important is a barrier-free usage, simply 'exotic' display resolutions, or, as 
in my case, very good eyes. 
Whilst a reduction on absolute measurements does not exactly break usage in 
such cases it certainly makes the user experience a very ugly one. That is not 
what ownCloud wants...

Maybe you could explain a little more detailed why you suggest such rule?
