Part and assembly display scaling

With very large monitors becoming more common (I use a 65" 4K TV as a monitor) it has become possible to display most parts at full scale.  That's a valuable  "sanity check" if one can see a part at the same size as it will be when machined.  Unfortunately, typical mouse scroll resolution means too big or too small images - besides it's fiiddly to be putting a ruler on the screen when attempting to zoom to full scale..

Wouldn't it be nice to have an icon such as [1:1] which sets zoom so parts display at life size.  I know the PPI of my monitor and I'm pretty sure Onshape knows the pixels in part features.  It seems it would be possible to create such an icon which would only require a user to set their monitor PPI once..
