Yes, please add something like this.  While I was running the tests for
various implementations I didn’t realise I needed to do this zooming.

Currently Firefox and Safari pass this test, but would fail the the
operator script required a zooming out, since they don’t have the zoom-
and-pan behaviours envisaged by the spec.  Do we really need to fail
this test based on the zoom-and-pan ability of the UA?

I guess that this requirement is there so the operator can check that
there is no rendering outside the initial viewport.  This could be
achieved by other means, such as script modifying the viewBox attribute
on the root <svg> element.
