You don't need to open the Zoom dialogue, instead you can right-click on the percentage in the status bar to get a menu where can select any of these options. You can also double-click the percentage to get to the dialogue instead. Obviously, you didn't see that and neither did I (I think I was at some point explicitly pointed there). So, despite the functionality being there, we do have a problem. Are you interested in turning the problem into a spec?

If you can use a pointing device, using the status bar is sufficient, but the status bar cannot be reached via the keyboard (as far as I know), so keyboard users always need to go through the menus.
