In this week's links for light reading, there is a reference to responsive
images, eg:

I'd be interested to hear this lists' opinion on the proposed syntax.

To me this screams of putting styling information, into the document.  For
comparison, we now use media queries to change font sizes and element
locations, based on viewport size and/or direction.  I would have expected
responsive images to be implemented in a similar manner, not with new html

In other words, an <img src=...> is descriptive of the target image, and we
add alt-attributes to describe it as such.   Simply showing a higher
quality image of the same thing, shouldn't change the document structure.
