AFAIK, this would require creating more variables for the SLA file. Then
you need to be able to switch on or off the feature.

It seems to me that the feature would be as often annoying as helpful. I
can't imagine a situation where I would always want to jump to the place
I was, and at the zoom level I used when I last saved the file.

If I might routinely want this, it would most likely be when I am
actively working on a file, then switch to another, then back again, but
in this setting I would load another file without closing the first,
then switch back to it. In that case, you get the behavior you're asking

Sometimes features are missing for a reason.
