You stated your point clearly, and I agree with it.  The basic
functionality you describe has been available since the dawn of the
Internet; modern designs should not interfere with it (within limits of
course; at some point the graphics won't allow the page to compress any
further horizontally--the current page reaches this point at around 600
pixels wide, which is fine as far as I am concerned).
