The introduction of a responsive layout in Monobook (T195625) breaks the site layout for users, especially sysops and buerocrats, who are using a collection of standard user scripts in their workflow. Some report that they had to switch to Vector to keep the site usable at all.
One less problematic example can be seen here:
Some also reported that they had problems at the large zoom levels they regularly need to use due to bad eyesight. (see T196213)
Since I believe only long-time and experienced users are still on Monobook, many of them because the scripts they need to do their work are only available there, the site working for them should be more important than a responsive layout.
