--- Comment #16 from Eyal Rozenberg <eyalroz at technion.ac.il> ---
Coming from the recent dupe bug, I suggest this bug's name be changed from
"probably" to "definitely". 

Just for comparison - remember that scanners typically support 2400 DPI
resolution if not higher, which means 1 pixel is ~10^-6m = 0.001 cm. No reason
why we should not be able to position content on a page at this resolution.

With due respect to UX considerations - at the very least there should be an
option controlling this. It is not reasonable to cripple an app just to make
the fractional digits slightly less confusing to newbies.

I understand that some underlying infrastructure is limited to 10^-5 meter
increments, and the UX people might want to hide some semi-incoherent rounding
artifacts at that resolution. If that's the case, then it's the underlying
representation which should be made to use higher resolution.
