Your change fixed something other than what I had in mind.

The following paragraph:

"The intrinsic width and intrinsic height of the media resource are the  
dimensions of the resource in CSS pixels after taking into account the  
resource's dimensions, aspect ratio, clean aperture, resolution, and so  
forth, as defined for the format used by the resource."

...doesn't say whether to scale up or down when taking into account aspect  
ratio.
