What about altering preview size based on user preference? Instead of 
their operating system. Would that be "highly inappropriate"?

While I think we should mandate PNG format (for interoperability 
reasons) I don't think the other requirements are necessary.

I was reminded of user preferences today while trying to proof a 
proposal where the editor to save paper had set the type to 10 pt. It is 
a good thing I am not trying to read it outside because my magnifying 
glass would have set it on fire by this point. The copy I got was image 
only so increasing the size is problematic.

So, I think Michael's suggestion is a good one.

Hope you are having a great day!
