Images would be in the content/HTML, but the choice of which one would be in the CSS....

I'm not sure I understand.  You just need to use media-queries for rotation. In this discussion, the headers are not meant to replace mediaqueries, but to give a hint of what kind of resources are available. 
The issue with putting everything in the CSS is that we would make it a content language instead of style, a kind of funny history ;)  
HTML (content+style) -> HTML (content) + CSS (style) -> HTML (content) + CSS (content+style).
