Okay, I had just misunderstood the relation between "w", "h" and "x"
So we have following (if I've understood correctly):
"w": minimum viewport width in CSS pixels for this image
"h": minimum viewport width in CSS pixels for this image
"x": the scaling value from CSS pixels to image data pixels
I think that's fine. Perhaps allow "ppi" or "dpi" instead of x, too?
