Surely you jest. Take another read of the first sentence on that URL.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. A lot of authors mess things up with fixed
line-heights, and even more mess it up using em for line-height.

Maybe, maybe not. If all authors were undersizing via the Owen Briggs

users could override with a single simple user stylesheet rule. More
often, rather complicated stylesheet(s) is/are required, because pages
are using an extensive array of classes and ids instead.
