            Bug ID: 20172
           Summary: “Art direction” use case not well supported
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: The srcset attribute
          Assignee: eoconnor@apple.com
          Reporter: w3c@marcosc.com
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

Although img@srcset supports the resolution matching use case in a limited way,
it does not fully support the art direction use case. To support the the art
direction use case, there needs to be some mechanism in place to force the
browser to display a given image when condition is met. This is akin to the use
case for CSS's !important rule.
