Sounds reasonable. Agreed.

Hmm, really?
If I load the libravatar plugin this is preferred, (X-)Face is shown if no
libravatar can be retrieved.
Loading my QR-Code plugin I always get the QR-Code, not only as a fallback. Can
I configure that?
Or can I prefer (X-)Face if available, then check for libravatar?

Yes, I always scale up (or down) to 48x48 pixel.

Then the code gets even smaller... And we have to make sure it is not truncated
for long mail addresses that result in a code larger than 48x48 pixel.

This is not a must-have but a nice-to-have. So as long as avatar size is 48x48
pixel I would always scale it.
Best readability on display is with a fixed scale of two or three. (e.g. a
21x21 Qr-Code would result in 42x42 or 63x63 pixel.)
