You seem to be using the word "scalable" in the exact opposite way of my
understanding of the pdftex manual.

I repeat: as far as I can see, we do not need and do not want to support
the behavior of including a PK file as a Type 3 once in the PDF output
and then having other instances ("at 60pt") be geometrically scaled. You
reported it was broken back in 1.40.0 and no one has missed it.

I repeat: the current behavior seems correct and desirable to me.
