> whether you want fonts that small
I did use and like the "unreadable" font of Xterm, something like 6x4, so that you can keep a look of a syslog of a remote PC in a corner of your screen (if red letters appear there, increase font and read).
Another use was to cut&paste a big number of lines without having to scroll.
Most new terminal emulator can't do that anymore.
