Ids it possible to create scaleable fonts and icons (and lines) so that when a map is zoomed out the text, icon, and line shrink? Why? Because when you zoom out the text and icons become blended together and unreadable because they stay the same size while the relative size of the underlying map changes.

Thanks for comment - this is the problem that we are aware for the long time. The current problem is creating some kind of alghoritm that decided on which zoom level labels should be shrinked and on which it should not be visible anymore.

We are experimenting with alghoritm that is checking if for example more than 50% labels are overlapping than reducef font to 8px if the labels are still overlapping hide them.
