Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: I don't usually like this kind of feature, because it relies on
authors making good judgements and that has historically not been a successful
strategy for Web browser vendors. However, in this particular case the issue
isn't really about optimisation (as it is for 'image-rendering'), it's about a
very concrete desire to actually see the pixels blown up. This is something we
probably _should_ address.

I've marked this "LATER", so we don't lose track of it. However, now is not a
great time to add this, because before adding more new features we should first
let the browsers catch up to what we've already specced.
