Hi Henri, Mat and all,

Maciej advised Ian Devlin to file a bug for his era attribute idea,
saying, "If you want to pursue your feature request, file a bug at
<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/> as a first step. Consider filing it
under the HTML.next product if it's not essential for this to be in
HTML5, since HTML5 is winding down and the WG is likely to be
reluctant to add new features. But if you strongly feel this should be
in HTML5, go ahead and file it under the HTML5 component.

Mat indicated the urgency of the adaptive image proposal in his July
19 post [1] so I put the bug in HTML5. I personally think it would be
great to have an adaptive image element in HTML5. Mat do you feel
strongly that an adaptive image element be included in HTML5? The new
HTML charter milestone table  [2] states 2014 as a recommendation. No
timeline or milestones exist for HTML.next. Knowing all too well how
slow things move around here, I am apprehensive of delaying to

It would be good to get other opinions. Should specification of
adaptive images be postponed? What do working group members think are
the pros and cons of postponing?
