You could easily reverse this reasoning: why should a user set his
preferences again for every site, when most browsers provides a way to
do this in one sweep?

Just don't use 'px' and everybody's fine.

I think it's a great initiative, but it would only be useful for sites
with a heavy user binding (online banking, frequently visited forums and
the like). I can't imagine a web surfer taking that time when his or her
visits to the site are infrequent or short.
In my experience, people who really need or want to already have a user
stylesheet or even an assisting program, and other people just use the
scrollwheel to zoom on occasion.
