> So, I'd like a clear statement from here that any browser design that results in the some of the defined viewport being cut off pretty much all of the time, and thus resulting in a different experience across desktop and mobile, is non-standard conforming and needs to be fixed. Breaking websites in such a way should not be an accepted outcome of this proposal.

I'm not sure where or why you've come to the conclusion that "breaking websites in such a way" is a desired outcome of this proposal. I've acknowledged in this proposal that the current behavior is not ideal, and my intent with this proposal is to provide a hopefully simple-to-implement-by-browsers workaround for how things currently work (with the goal that it could get released sooner rather than later........)

>I have been told WONT FIX with a link to this issue.

It seems to me from that bug report that this wasn't linked to as a _solution_ to your problem, but as a _see also_ to your problem; in other words, perhaps this proposal could help you in the meantime (if it's accepted/implemented).

That said, I would love for an additional proposal to be created that addresses the root cause and gets browsers to conform to it; I would fully support it (not that my support means much 🙂 ).
