I prefer that browser vendors get to investigate some false faillures report because the zoom had to have an effect in some very odd cases (but I don't quite get which kind of effect it should have) than to have them ship almost-completely untested zoom features. 
I don't say that to annoy, it's just that some browsers implement gpu-optimized zoom implementations and I think it may be good to specify that whenever a browser has such a mode, it should also run the tests in that mode, too. After that, it's just an advice, up to browser vendors to actually do it or not. I just say it would be a good idea ;-)
