I would say there needs to be less functionality/information when scaled in order for there to be a 'loss' - so it doesn't necessarily fail, however I agree with Gregg, fix the page for everyone and then see if there is a loss when scaled.

I would say that it technically fails -- it ALSO fails for others so it
theoretically should fail.  But WCAG doesn't specifically say that if it is
broken for all -----

But a broken page is not one to get all up in arms for.  Presumably it will
be fixed and should be evaluated then.
