I understand that most objects shouldn't have scale information

what most people would need/expect?
That depends. It's related to the line-width problem: Let's say, I
create a line with a width of 0.2inch.
Now I create a complex object out of those.
And then I scale that. When I reduce the size and the line width isn't
scaled along, eventually, the widths will be larger than the object.
If I scale that up, the lines will soon vanish (with respect to the
dimensions of the object).
User B, OTOH, creates a complex drawing and needs some line to have a
certain width (a ruler, for example).
After he finished, he finds that the drawing doesn't fit the available
space on the printout, so he scales the whole thing down. If the line
widths would scale along, his rulers would be messed up. So user B would
become quite desperate if there was no way to prevent this.
I guess that calls for an option in the style dialog which says if text
height/text spacing/line width/etc. should scale or not.
It should be possible to specify those with CSS styles, so I can control
this from a central point.
