I've been doing a good bit of thinking on this one lately, and in 
general I feel like we should step back and scope this feature quite a
 bit.  `<meta viewport>` is terrible because of all the magic 
behaviors and its strong association with mobile, specific device 
sizes, and assumptions of a fullscreen browser.  `@viewport` is 
terrible because its behavior is too complex beyond the needs of most 
scenarios.  And maybe this performance thing, though that hasn't 
really been a major source of pain for us compared to the functional 
issues of both viewport options.

Maybe a good first step would be for us to discuss the functionality 
that we want to support.  I think a more scoped set of scenarios will 
allow more flexibility in the syntax used.
