Mozilla already implements this idea, with something like -moz_zoom_in 
and -moz_zoom_out.

They're used when an image has been opened by itself in a browser 
window. There's a pref which causes Mozilla to scale the image to fit 
in the window. The zoom in and out cursors are used to allow you to 
toggle between fit-to-window and the image's native resolution. Similar 
to the feature in IE, but less obtrusive.
