It is not a niche problem. 

* It is in fact an issue for being able to make the website responsive on Mobile devices in low banwidth. 
* It has also the impact that you want to send different type of images for different types of screen resolutions a full fledged logo or a logo icon depending on the size of the screen. 

It is easy to do right now with background images, but not at all for images in <img/> element.

There was a thread about this recently in May 2011.

If you want example of Web sites doing responsive design
