Ah!  I suspect that would require significant re-programming -- but await
David Pilling's comments on this.

Two answers here:

1.  If this is an occasional requirement, then it is easy enough to use
the "enter own point size" option (as one might call it) at the bottom of
that menu.  Remember that it is necessary to press Enter to accept that

2.  If this is a regular occurrence, it is probably most useful to set up
a style (in a blank document) with an obvious name that contains just this
point size and nothing else.  If such a document is then saved as
"default", that style will be available in all new documents.

That is how I'd do it -- and indeed have done something similar myself. 
It works perfectly!
