If the argument is that UAs should be able to handle overflow in 
whatever way they want, they're already empowered to do so.  That's 
how mobile browsers shipped in the first place, choosing to zoom out 
oversized desktop sites instead of showing a scrollbar.  Chrome 
devtools "Device Emulation Mode" also makes ample use of zooming e.g. 
to display oversized tablet screens inside small windows.  If we're go
 to the trouble of adding a new property like `@viewport`, there's no 
point making it a hint, it should specify a behavior, otherwise as 
usual the non-hint content will be more trustworthy.
