Actually we were waiting for data from Rossen about mobile sites he mentioned that relied on the zoom property, but I think the data from Karl and Simon P. show significant use of the property in the wild.

We recently had an internal request to do a “scale to fit” via the zoom property; I’m not suggesting anyone do this, but it does show that zoom can be useful in some situations.
