[Qgis-developer] Duplication of functionality: Data-defined size and Size scale field

I'd like to discuss the future of symbol scaling :)

We currently have two ways of controlling symbol size using attribute  
values: using data-defined properties (newer) and size scale field (older).

Theoretically, the user could enable both but to me it seems that size  
scale field does not take effect if data-defined size is activated.

Additionally, size scale field had some issues, e.g.
"Size scale field does not work with symbol levels"  

For the sake of simplicity, I think it would be preferable to only have  
one control for controlling symbol size using attribute values. And for  
me, data-defined properties are the more refined and better working  

Can we move to git rid of the size scale field option?

Best wishes,
