See for example http://www.maxdesign.com.au/articles/em/ which 
recommends a max-width of 33em.

Is there a reason *not* to follow generally-accepted practice of an 
average 12 words per line?

Would it be possible to see an option that keeps a serif font for 
headings, but uses a sans font for body text? Is it sound practice to 
specify as the default a proprietary font not available on all platforms?

Last (for now), consider placing the side bar and body centred on the 
page, so on big screens you don't get a white space on the right. Note 
how the maxdesign.com.au page changes when you re-size the window.
