http://www.vimeo.com/m/ used to depend on the resizing behavior on
non-pseudos, but they have changed their design and it doesn't seem
to be an issue anymore.

Fixing this would be nice, especially if it can be fixed before too much
content accumulates, but I am not terribly interested in supporting new
behavior and grammar at this point, especially if there is no-one around
to spec it up.

Making sure all existing implementations behave the same would be a good
enough step at this point, then we can update the spec to match, and then,
we can start thinking of new better things.
