.. with the qualification that Mac always uses an integer scale factor (2x) and that you might get painting artifacts with a non integer factor. WinRT is are using float scale factors so this will see testing there. High scale factors should not be a problem in itself, what I see from testing on desktop is that the style breaks at some point going beyond 2X.

Android support itself is still on the TODO list.
