FWIW, my view is that src-* tries to solve too many problems, and as a 
result is unmanageably complex.

If the art direction use cases that srcset="" supports aren't sufficiently 
broad to be worh it, I would be more in favour of moving HTML away from 
supporting the art direction use cases natively at all rather than coming 
up with even more elaborate mechanisms.
