I think there are two separate things a developer might want:

- the number of actual pixels that correspond to 1 CSS px without zoom
- the page zoom

If you merge the two, then an unsuspecting developer might think that the user has zoomed in by 2x on an iPhone, and decide to make things smaller.

Do you have an example of a page that does make things smaller to counter the zoom? Are you referring to some iPhone-specific workarounds (like position:fixed elements being problematic for zoom?)

I assumed that sites which don't like being zoomed in would just block it via <meta viewport>.
