I see what you mean now. The change in the grid scale (rulers) was the only
things that caught my sight. I suppose it would have a distracting effect
to whoever attempts to figure out the impact of Dot for Dot.
Then again, one will need to have a clue about rendering to understand the
meaning of the technical phrase, which is probably day-to-day jargon to an
expert. This is definitely deceiving to an average user (unless there are
tooltips), much like the offering of different types of smoothing filters
(there is usually a default one for rookies).
