Dear all,

At the Coremob F2F at Facebook earlier in the summer, we accepted an action to explore asset loading and media queries.  Specifically, this was to draft a non-normative document with implementation notes about how to load assets depending on media-queries that can never become true 

After consideration and research, we've prepared an article [1] giving our point of view on preloading of assets within media queries.  In short, we've suggested a mechanism for developers to provide hints to the browsers to guide their decisions as to whether to preload.  We've done this in what we believe to be a backwards compatible way.

Best wishes,
