But the same solution can be used to change the default 96dpi value if it's too
much of a problem. 

How better is it to blindly use the (wrong) computed DPI value instead of
setting a (more sensitive) value of 96dpi by default?

People complain when removed, so it's back. You may choose to not install the
file containing the default value so that the (wrong, for now) computed DPI
applies, but I believe it should default to 96dpi in mainstream, just not to
confuse users.

Once open source drivers in Xorg are able to provide a real DPI value, it'll be
safe removing it.

Anyway, I doubt the is an Xfce specific issue, is it?
