It's worth mentioning these particular behaviors:

If you enlarge a text frame with text, the frame is enlarged but not the
If you enlarge a Bezier curve, the curve is enlarged, but the line width
is the same.

If you create a group of a text frame and Bezier curve, then enlarge,
the font increases in size, and the width of the Bezier line increases.
This might actually be a desired result, but is worth considering.
