That's a fair point but a corner case, albeit a growing one. Of greater
importance is the fact that most handheld web browsers incorrectly use the
screen CSS media type, rather than the handheld one.

Content will probably need to be refactored for small-screen devices
anyway, so I think it's a moot point. Anyway, you can do clever things
with resolution dependent layout:
