Last we spoke about this in New York, Microsoft wanted to either kill the zoom property (i.e. actually remove it from the implementations that support it), or to spec it and have it interoperably implemented across the board. The general preference was in favor of killing it, but Apple had some reservations and wanted to check more data before committing to killing it.

I may have missed something, but I believe we did not revisit the topic later on, so we are still there: There's a general preference for getting rid of it, but no commitment, and we have a proposed spec that we could adopt if we decide to keep it after all.

I believe the ball is in Apple's court.
