I believe Maciej Stachowiak was prototyping a native implementation of `srcset` that only addressed the resolution aspect, but I’m not sure where that landed.

I’d be very happy to work towards those ends, though I would propose that the scope of the `srcset` attribute be reduced to a set of resolution heuristics as a part of that effort. I want to stress that this does represent the consensus of the Community Group, rather than simply my own opinions on the matter.

A native solution to the laundry-list of “responsive images” concerns is long overdue, but I’m confident that the end is in sight.
