IMHO it would be very unfortunate if this terrible design was immortalized in
the HTML5 spec.

<meta viewport> prevents serving same markup to all clients - layout changes
can't be done with media queries and stylesheets alone.

Hopefully it's still used only by small fraction of the web, mostly pages that
were intended to be webkit-only and served to clients with "iP*" in their
user-agent string.

If anything, I'd prefer HTML5 spec to make <meta name=viewport> non-conforming
and defer to the @viewport spec.

AFAIK behaviors of <meta name=viewport> map closely to properties in @viewport,
so the latter spec could be the place where <meta name=viewport> is documented
(if that is really required).
