I'm not a fan of adding more work-arounds that modify older work-arounds. If we
can fix this up cleanly with something like scale & square bounding box by
default then we should do so IMO. That would result in cleaner wikitext like


An automatic conversion that preserves existing image sizes is very much
possible if the community agrees that going for a square bounding box by
default makes sense. But again, lets not get ahead of ourselves to much here &
focus on the Parsoid interface for now.
