In the failures section there are 'draft' failures listed. This one with 
health warnings.

While it would make a tidy failure if we could say - 'do not disable 
pinch zoom'. If that's not a runner it should be removed as a failure as 
its currently confusing to see it there. I see Jon and Patricks comments 
after David posed the question.

Any good reason for keeping it?
