There's an open issue in Web Apps 1.0 on img dimensions:

The height and width attributes give the preferred rendered dimensions 
of the image if the image is to be shown in a visual medium.

Should we require the dimensions to be correct? Should we disallow 

I'll vote -1 on requiring the dimensions to be correct. Today on the web 
many pages and authors rely on being able to rescale an image with width 
and height.

I'm +1 on allowing percentages. That seems like a useful feature to me.
