currently both <number> and <percentage> values are allowed for the  
various zoom descriptors in @viewport. A long time ago, an issue was  
raised about this ("Issue 4: Should both numbers and percentages be  
allowed?"). According to the complaint there is no tradition in CSS for  
having two different ways of expressing the same value.

Looking at various other specs I'm leaning towards keeping <percentage>  
and drop <number> for zoom values. Opinions?
