This is really all a matter of 'what one gets used to'...he's used to seeing 72dpi in the image size and so your suggestion is a good one. Of course all he has to do otherwise is go into the image size and change that value himself. But a script would make this seamless without his intervention.
I want to throw another wrench into the works...dot pitch.
I come from a CAD background and before LCD monitors came into existence one would want to get the smallest dot pitch possible on your CRT so that your lines would be smooth and not choppy.
I wonder if (1) CRTs are still the best way to go for photo editing and (2) if dot pitch is still a concern? I would think that the answer in both cases is still "yes". LCD monitors, as far as I know, do not have variations in dot pitches (unless there's been developments in smaller diodes packed closer together?) and are actually spaced further apart than CRT 'pixels'.
