What are you basing this on?

A quick test in Chrome and Firefox on OS X and Chrome on an old G1
Android phone, at least, shows that *not* to be true; a background
image is only loaded for the rule that matches the applicable media-
query. You can watch the logs (or developer console) and see other
images fetched as you resize the browser.

What browsers/platforms have you tested where this doesn't work?
