Great news! The current picture proposal does rely on `srcset` in part, howeverófor resolution switching only, based on the original `srcset` proposal rather than the extended syntax since proposed by the WHATWG. As such, Iím not sure how it would be best to proceed here. Iím happy to take point on submitting a version of the `srcset` proposal reduced to that single function, if that makes the most sense, perhaps in a separate branch ó then that and the extended syntax branches could then be merged when the time comes.

If including a reduced `srcset` spec would add significant complication, itís worth mentioning that `picture` *can* function using media queries aloneóitís a bit more complicated to author, however.

As an aside: moving this workflow to GitHub is a *huge* step in encouraging participation from the developer community. Youíre doing great work!
