I think CSS media queries could be extended to express multitouch  
capabilities. I don't think that would be useful for documents, but it  
could allow for per-device reimplementation of zoom and scroll. I'll leave  
deciding whether that's a fair use case to others. But that still doesn't  
warrant requesting different content.
