  1) It keeps the aspect ratios and improves usability when a partially
     sighted user uses a larger font.

  2) It better scales to devices with different screen resolutions - and,
     as tablet users, we should be well aware of the problems of a fixed
     width design which doesn't fit in 696 or 800px. Similarly, if a user
     chooses to have a large window on a big screen, you limit their
     freedom by constraining the content into a narrow column.
