I assume you'd handle it the same way as when 'width' and 'height',
which refer to the viewport, change dynamically.

There's no concept of time or sequence in (non-aural) CSS. If the
viewport is X inches wide, then the initial containing block is X
inches wide, media queries mapping to an X-inch-wide viewport apply,
and the layout is defined from there.
