No, I disagree.
Mainly for one reason that is the "fallback" for non-supporting UAs.

Following your proposal the author always has to set the font-size to a higher
value (or to the 'max-font-size).
So the font-size will be too large in non-supporting UAs.

This could be avoided if the new feature will be "expand + shrink-to fit"
instead of just "shrink".
Think about the Flexbox modul - it is quite the same "functionality".
