Well, the actual units to use is of course one detail to figure out.

However I do think there are "columns" in the sense that for instance
if you specify a proportional default font, emacs will figure out
window size which is 80 "columns", and will choose some size to use
for tabs (which are defined in terms of columns).  It's not an absurd
concept: you just pick some character to use in definining what a
column is, for instance SPC.
