So... zooming OUT is out of the question for some strange reason? :P

As a professional user, you use many screen-grabs in your work?
Not saying it's not an issue... but a "pretty major issue"... yea, no.
Doesn't sound like it to me.
Also, it must be a Mac-only issue, because I've used GIMP on a 4K Dell XPS
13 screen which annihilates the resolution on "retina" Macbooks, and it was
crisp as hell. No pixel doubling. Only issue is you had to zoom in a lot
because the pixels are so tiny. This was running Linux though. Maybe we're
just lucky? Inkscape had a worse time of the 4K screen because it has to
re-draw all the shapes. It was really slow, but DPI scaling cured it. More
pixels = more processor overhead. Ymmv.
Thanks for hijacking my email thread to complain about your user issue, btw.
