Newly created point text items should default to using a symbology
reference scale at the current map canvas scale

This means that a user can drop some text directly onto the map
as an annotation, and it will be set to say 16 points font size
at the current scale. Zooming in/out of the map will scale the text
up and down, so it will always retain its relative geographic size.

(Of course, users can manually uncheck the reference scale option
if they prefer to have a fixed font size independent of the map scale)
