How feasible would it be to allow objects to ignore the map's zoom setting?

When you modify a map's zoom, icons are either drawn enlarged or shrunken relative to their native size. Now, picture a screen object -- for example, a screen border having the same dimensions as the map control -- that anchors to the edge of the map control. This object becomes practically unusable once zoom is changed (too large if zoom is increased, in my case).

Off top...
obj/hud/screen_border
appearance_flags = RESET_ZOOM


This object would ignore the map's "zoom" setting when drawn.
Not feasible at all. But you shouldn't be using that for zooming if you want to exclude things. You can use a PLANE_MASTER on plane 0 and use transform scaling to scale anything on that plane, then you just throw your screen objects on another plane.
That works too.. Thanks.
