Are you really sure that it cannot be modified after the page loads?
It definitely can in the browser that I am working on, and there is no
code, at least in WebKit, that prohibits that.

At least the initial scale / zoom, it very much about presentation of
the contents, though you can say that the min and max values are
related to user interaction. These are very important parts of the
spec in order to make it really useful.

It seems analogous to letting CSS control display of bookmark/URL/status bars within desktop browsers.
