We've prepared our documents for publication: 
http://usecases.responsiveimages.org/pub/WD_15Jan2013.html
http://picture.responsiveimages.org/pub/WD_15Jan2013.html
 
We've also checked the requirements with Mike Smith and Ian Jacobs about making this a joint RICG/HTMLWG publication. We believe we have gotten all the relevant Final Specification Licensing Commitments from the parties that have contributed to both documents spec.

I suggest you work with the srcset attribute author to see if you can agreement on that kind of text.

The RICG currently has the following text:
http://picture.responsiveimages.org/pub/WD_15Jan2013.html#differences-from-img-element

However, we would be happy to work with Ted to create some text we can use in both specs.
