So what? It won't change with font size, and maybe that's what the creator wants.

But it will change with font size, and depending on the screen/font ratio it may be too large or too small.

I prefer ems too (for me, that is, for the settings I use and for my taste, 1em is not too small), but let others test and decide for themselves. Just remind them that screen sizes can be changed (by changing device, or changing the screen orientation, or changing the margins), and that font sizes can be changed, so relative indents can change too.
