This solution doesn't work very well with pipelining.  Not an issue for 
video, where you don't want to pipeline it with other things anyway, in 
the common case, but a serious problem for images, imo.

Can we just use media queries but not call the attribute "media"?  Or 
evangelize the sites involved?  How many were there?
