As it happens, I am not using plain tex but pdftex or Context,
depending on the task. Plain tex has no provision for pdf
insertions. The current task is a Context project. But my question
relates to pdftex and not the Context macro package. Hence I asked
it here. 

The Pdftex Manual describes how to set four different page modes but
does not cover the question I asked. 

Following your suggestion I did discover an apparent fix:

\pdfcatalog{/OpenAction /Fit}

...but surely there is a more direct method to arrive at this
information other than analyzing LaTeX macros?
