I'm open to suggestions when it comes to name it.

Do you have a specific change in mind when it comes to functionality for  
that property, or do you just want to drop it? I guess you saw from the  
conformance requirements in Chapter 8 that support for it is optional.

I think there are valid use cases for supporting such a UA "hint" where  
allowing zooming would actually be user un-friendly, in particular for web  
applications/widgets.

I'm fine with that.
