Testing iPhone OS 4 (see proposal for exact version), gives me a default  
maximum-scale value of 5. It has most likely been different in previous  
versions, which also Apple's documentation suggests.

For instance, I've tried to load this in portrait mode and then flip it  
into landscape which still shows the page zoomed in (scale factor of 2.4):

It should probably say something about re-evaluation of used values if  
device-width/device-height/available-width/available-height changes, yes.
