Many of the clients I have worked for don't even know the difference
between fixed and relative font size. Even if companies/clients DO know
the difference and know which is better, they are unlikely to make such
specifications, unless they have a *very* specific contract. If they were
making such specifications, they would probably also be making tons of
other specifications such as: "Make sure that all images have ALT tags";
"Please use the <em> tag instead of the <i> tag"; "Remember that Internet
Explorer doesn't support layers like Netscape does"; etc.

Eventually, designers would cover their ears in annoyance and inform the
client that they DON'T need to be told how to do their job.
