As I understand it Gnome was supposedly going to do the right thing with
respect to DPI soon, I don't know how long from now 'soon' is though.
However, as you say the current situation is definitely not good. Many
laptops in particular have screens where the DPI is much higher than 96
DPI and on the other end of the spectrum most HDTV's have much lower
than 96 DPI.
