px is obviously a relative unit (relative to the users screen) unless
your going to try to say everyone views stuff at the same dpi. It's late
so perhaps I'm missing it but I do not see anywhere in the spec that you
cited where it says px is absolute. However I will quote loosely from
the spec: "values with relative units (em, ex, px) must be made absolute
by multiplying with the appropriate font or pixel size," 

So, go ahead and try what I suggested THEN tell me it's not right. Using
px WILL make it more consistent across win, linux, mac, etc.. and will
not inhibit the browsers ability to enlarge the text size at all...

No, the problem he stated was the inconsistency of sizes on different
platforms. A totally addressable issues regardless of what the user has
done with the default font settings.
