I think my suggestion has the advantage that you still can say

  .nr PS 10

which probably most -ms users are accustomed to.

Has anyone ever seriously used a point size < 3pt or > 300pt?  The
stress is on `seriously'.  I think this value is quite a useful
threshold for interpreting values as fractional point sizes.
