Seriously, default UI font should be reduced to more balanced, crispier and compact 10pt. Then Ubiquity fits...

Please note that tweaking fonts is not the right solution.
We cannot guarantee to fit in a particular size, due to localisations. Some languages are naturally longer than others, a lot longer.
I am suspecting this is due to having ubi-partman page options shown with images before we get to that page & calculate options for real. Reducing visibility only to those that are most likely to always be there (e.g. wipe&install and the "something else") reduced the vertical height of the start-up page in quantal. SImilar fix needs to be developed for precise (the code of the ask page has changed in quantal significantly).
