I completely agree, it is a failure of 1.4.4 since the content cannot be 
resized to 200% without losing information.

And, of course, I think that disabling CSS is not an acceptable 
"solution", since in that case I'd have to accept any website as 
compliant with SC 1.4.4. I cannot figure out of any site that, without 
styles, cannot be resized to 200% without losing content.
