Changing font size for one page for all text keeping their relative
sizes untouched is not only impractical but nearly impossible, I think.
That's why text zoom exists, but text zoom and font size both have the
ability to break layouts, that's a fact, so I don't think that
particular concern gives any of these an advantage.
