Working Group Resolution (LC-2796):
We agree, Firefox has supported zoom for a long time and the language
should be updated in the intent.  We will make the change that you
recommended.  

The 3rd paragraph will state:
[DONE] The author cannot rely on the user agent to satisfy this Success
Criterion for HTML content if users do not have access to a user agent with
zoom support. For example, if they work in an environment that requires
them to use IE 6.
