Really? If I need to use a magnifier, surely I need to use the
magnifier. I hardly see how allowing zooming so I could actually see
your widget would be unfriendly.

It might be the case that user agents need to implement a zoom which
lets users know about events that happen beyond the zoomed area or
something, but I don't think it's ever reasonable to assume that
allowing zooming would be user unfriendly.
