The design of <meta name="viewport" ...> is quite unfortunate compared to
@viewport. However, authors will want to use <meta name="viewport" ...> to
support already shipped versions of the Android default browser which are the
new IE6 that's unlikely to be updated. Telling authors that this is invalid
doesn't really help anyone. Once @viewport is ready for use (implemented in all
browsers and not vendor-prefixed), its benefits over <meta name="viewport" ...>
will be so obvious that it shouldn't need a validation *error* to advertise it.
