One problem I run into is the ability to reflow on mobile.  Other than getting a site to respond to the large text settings in the OS by using system fonts or using the browser reader function which omits content it seems that most of the time I have to pinch zoom on mobile even on responsive sites because there are no breakpoints below 320.   So you end up with horizontal scrolling.

(for those who missing the end of the teleconference :-)

I don't know of users having problems with getting the line length that they need. As long as there's reflow, then users can change the viewport size. On mobile, don't need it any smaller.

So my question is: Do you know of any situations where people cannot get the short line length they need?

If not, then maybe we say that while this is a user need, it's covered in existing environments, so we put it lower priority to get into 2.1.

The potential problem I can see is if developers can disable viewport resizing -- or if a new format/tool didn't provide it.
