WebKit's position is that window.devicePixelRatio and the 
device-pixel-ratio MQ are purely about the capabilities of the 
hardware, and should not change under user zoom. It's bizarre to have 
different behaviors for page zoom and pinch zoom (users don't 
understand the difference), and zooming should be under user control; 
pages should not change their layout or appearance when zoomed. If 
WebKit were to implement the resolution media query, we would also 
only do so in a way that does not change with zooming (any kind).
