 I don't think that zoom (at least at start) were to be understood that way.
For me, the zoom entry is just to have "resize video to X" when you click on
it (or using a hotkey), and that's it, no other side effects. If understood
that way, the only incorrect thing is that the zoom entry should not stay
selected (or should be unselected as soon as the video is resized).
