That's not quite the same. Assuming this is combined with a 
width=device-width viewport,  this would specifically be calling for a
 scrollbar. Not for a scrollbar or a zoom our or any UA dependent 
behavior to ensure this content isn't shrunk. Scrolling may not always
 be appropriate. Think of printing, or non interactive signage, or any
 number of UAs which may decide that the right way to avoid shrinking 
the content and keeping it viewable is something else than a scroll 
bar. `@viewport {min-width: ..;}` does that, and flexbox does not.
