My bad, this should have been a proposal for a ::viewport pseudo-element
in that case (the description still applies of course). I read some old
bugzilla messages, where ':-moz-viewport' was discussed. There was not
mentioning of pseudo-class or pseudo-element so following the CSS3
syntax I thought it was a pseudo-class.

I could have known, since Mozilla supports only recently the new syntax
for pseudo-elements. And I didn't follow my own thought it should be a
pseudo-element, since I thought there were some good reasons, you and
Ian Hickson wanted to make it a pseudo-class :-).
