That would seem to make more sense to me, personally, I would expect it
to behave differently according to the type of document, eg...

* Spreadsheet - open at full width of mail pane/window, with some sort 
  of reasonable height, so it looks like it's in landscape
* Word Processor - open at full width of mail pane/window, probably
  with height the same as width, although that's probably just because 
  that's the size I tend to have AbiWord open at anyway ;-)
* PDF - open at width and height appropriate for 100% zoom

All IMHO of course ;-)
