There seems to be some confusion between the documentation, the error  
message text and what Koma is actually doing.

fontsize=12pt seems to be working only as argument to \documentclass,  
so the error message is wrong in this point.
(The documentation even states that the fontsize argument can only be  
used for scrlttr2.)

Markus seems to be implementing the possibility to switch the  
fontsize inside a document using \KOMAoptions, maybe this explains  
these inconsistencies.

best regards
