Perhaps for your screen resolution and your window size of AR.
But another user can see only the left part of the lines
or another one with a large screen sees only a "stamp".
I think, "fit to size", "fit to width", or "fit to visible"
are much better choices.

Of course:

  pdfstartview=XYZ %
    \hypercalcbp{\oddsidemargin+1in} %
                 -\headheight-\headsep} %
\section{Hello World}
\section{Foo bar}

The possible options with arguments are explained
in the PDF specification (Fit, FitH, FitBH, ..., XYZ).
\hypercalcbp can be used for calculation the options
and either e-TeX or package calc is required.

Yours sincerely
