What is your definition of "focusing on that area"? Focusing on the 5
for means having 5 under the mouse pointer. And that is exactly how zoom
is implemented right now. You put 5 under the mouse pointer and no
matter if you zoom in or out, it will stay there. Now how can you
possibly argue that this is not intuitive and useful? I seriously don't
understand your problem. Nor do I understand what changes you are

How is the center of the window relevant? What counts is what's under
the cursor as that is where you are going to work next.
