Hi Peter,

I too worry that nothing is stopping authors from using different images and
suggested possibility using responsive alt on source (see comment #1).

Alternatively we would need some very strong spec text to outlaw different
images. Suggestions? Maybe in the future it could be made machine testable?
There are such things as TinEye.
