Till yesterday my acrobat was broken for quite some months and I
couldn't experiment much (I hated to reinstall windows).

I looked into ConTeXt source for PDF and into PDF Reference manual a
while ago I don't remember any changes mentioned since that time.

I realized that opening a document on 100% (75%) for example needs
some special handling like /GoTo /D [page /XYZ left top zoom] (I'm
guessing now, I don't have to proper resources available to check it)
which has to be triggered right after the document opens. A bit dirty
in comparison to "fit width", I agree.

I would guess that 99% of the code needed to do that already exists,
it's just that the "zoom to XX %" needs to be triggered at document
opening time. This might have to do something with Taco's remarks. I
might be wrong, so please excuse me in that case.

(I find PDF way too complicated for experimenting in comparison to PS.)
