Especially since text will display suitably at any size, while an oversized image is clearly oversized.
See, even the advocate of accessibility has a misconception because I often have to enlarge images to tell what in the hell I'm looking at even if it's just an enlarged image beyond being aesthetically pleasing and gets a little pixelated, I still need to boost it a size or two in order to make out some of the finer details.
Never try to second guess the needs of others, just let the page enlarge, resize it dynamically like RWD, just let the page flow. I'm still baffled by people that do fixed width 800px designs that are too small on my desktop and too big on my mobile devices and basically all around useless for any purpose unless you're using a laptop circa 1987. Those stupid fixed width layouts don't fill the tablet view port properly when you double tap it and there you sit panning back and forth for no reason other than the designers stubbornness, ignorance or both.
Maybe I'm wording my opinion a little strongly but I think a bunch of designers out there need to be jolted out of their complacency to get on the ball and learn that it's actually easier to make some one-size-fits all sites that everyone can use and enjoy across all view ports and be accessible to boot opposed to sitting around splitting hairs over some fixed width pixel fixed font layouts that turn away more visitors today than they attract.
They aren't doing the visitors any favors, nor their clients, and will soon go the way of the dinosaur if they don't get with the program.
Some of us don't sue, we leave little notes in the feedback telling the site owner why we abandoned the cart and went elsewhere and that will come back to bite the designer in the butt.
