Worth noting that this classic map example (assuming you mean things 
like Google Maps) has absolutely nothing to do with responsive design or 
even with zooming per se. JavaScript is intercepting all 
touches/gestures/mouse wheel zooms within the bounds of the map element, 
preventing the browser's actual zoom logic to kick in, and instead it 
loads different map tiles and overlays them with street names etc.

So let's not confuse matters further here by dragging in things that 
aren't really related to responsive design at all.
