Speaking as Xorg: No, we don't.  You have _no_ idea how many displays 
there are.  There's nothing like effective coverage to be had here.

More to the point, your DPI numbers would be per-output anyway, so 
there's no picking a single point size preference, the same size in 
pixels would be different sizes in millimeters on each output.

You can't win at this.  Don't try.
