<meta name="viewport" ...> is now implemented in multiple browsers, so it seems
like it should be defined in the HTML(5) spec.

I realize that process that led to <meta name="viewport" ...> being created
was... less than ideal, and that it's also suboptimal as a means for addressing
the use case it's designed for (and that doing it via CSS a la
http://people.opera.com/rune/TR/css-viewport/ would probably be better), but
the fact is that's it is now implemented in multiple browsers, and quite a lot
of sites are using it, and the lack of a standard spec for it does not help to
ensure interoperability of those sites.
