Kenneth is aware, but to close the loop, this no longer seems to be the case for
Android. Some discussion is in this bugzilla bug that was eventually closed
as invalid, and therefore not to be fixed:
<http://webkit.org/b/47607> meta tag parser needs to support ; as separator due to Android having made that popular

I think both "device" and "window" widths may be desired. At one time I filed
and its description mentions that both might be desired, essentially asking
for a "window-width".
<http://webkit.org/b/43662> Viewport "device-width" and height should not use window width and height

I haven't read the newer draft yet, so I'm not sure how relevant that is.
