I assume you've read most of the thread. As you remember, the OP was 
whining how Mozilla's font zoom made his site look "incorrect". 
Pointing to CSS3 specification isn't going to help his problem, is it?

After saying that, I'm aware that this list isn't for end user nor 
page author support. So, I'd recommend the OP to join 
c.i.w.a.stylesheets -- just remember to read 
http://css.nu/faq/ciwas-mFAQ.html first.
