I can't say I've ever been convinced of the "readability" argument.

I use this display purely for coding. I can read it just fine. 3840x2160, with no resizing, lets me view the same content as a 2x2 grid of 4 1920x1080 monitors.

Resizing to 200% would simply mean I'd now be using 4 pixels at 4K to render what any 1080p display can render using 1 pixel. Rescaled 4K might be prettier and crisper, but I'm not going for "pretty". I'm going for more lines of code for the same surface area.
