But rather than redraw the entire document, why not just redrawing only the visible portion?  If a user is zoomed in to see only a quarter of a page, why redraw the entire document (or even the entire page for that matter)?  Redrawing should only be needed when panning or zooming, excluding the visible area which should always be redrawn.

presumably requiring quite a bit of rewriting by the devs.
