There is a proposal for doing the viewport meta element via  a CSS @viewport -at-rule instead. It would be nice to have this in WebKit.

Joe Lambert wrote a post which included some rational for wanting something like this in CSS [0]

"Current meta tag support is useful but it does pose some problems, especially if you wish to treat different devices differently. Suppose you’re using media queries to render your site differently for iPhone & iPad, you may wish to prevent scaling on iPhone but not on iPad. This (as far as I have found) isn’t possible without conditionally adding the metatags server side.

"If these viewport controls were controlled via CSS then we could use the same media queries to deliver different settings to different devices!"
