its nothing to do with TeX. any application could use fonts at their
design size, and never scale, if they had the fonts. equally, TeX has
no special feelings either way about scaling fonts
if you say that some commercial typefaces are not very good, or that
there are few math typefaces, fine. nothing to do with TeX, tho
