Not entirely clear how that works though. On my mac, it seems to be 
the right size as long as you don't zoom (because then its size 
changes, just like any other unit).

On my phone, if I use the meta viewport, it is larger than the 
requested size and larger than the same size in standard css mm, this 
works out to a different proportion between mm and mozmm compared to 
my mac. If I do not use the meta viewport, it is smaller than the 
requested size (no doubt due to the initial state being zoomed out).

So the result is not reliably matching the physical measurement nor 
not reliably proportional to other css units. Doesn't sound terribly 
useful to me.
