To make sure 100% zoom size matches the physical paper size on screen the user 
should be able to set her PPI (pixels per inch).
Otherwise a good screen with many PPI will make the font look way too small at 
the 100% zoom - and an old screen with few/low PPI will make the font and paper 
size look much too big.

one for requirements.
personally I don't see a benefit in this, but this is just my opinion.

The benefit is that even when the PPI varies so much from good to bad screens, 
the user will be sure that 100% means 100% and the paper appearing on screen 
will match the physical output. It won't be larger or smaller. Isn't that what 
WYSIWIG is supposed to be? - why not aim for matching the printet output better?
