Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This doesn't seem to be in scope for HTML.

This problem exists with any element in CSS, not just <iframe>s. If you have a
<p> element with a given width and height in pixels, and the font-size is
changed without the author's intent, then an 'overflow' value other than
'scroll' or 'auto' will similarly cause problems. Fixing this just for <iframe>
isn't a thorough solution.

In general, UAs that only allow changing the font size are generally not going
to work. The recommended way of providing zooming is to zoom the pixel size,
not the font size, and this handles this case fine. It also happens to be what
all UAs do these days.
