Supporting WebP from Google while not supporting JPEG-XR from Microsoft 
seems rather difficult to hold position. Based on most tests I’ve been able 
to read, JPEG-XR and WebP perform almost similarly (slight win for WebP on 
average), but JPEG-XR is much faster to decode, making it better suited for 
the web context. Behind that, you get the usual MS vs GOOG debate as none of 
the two want to implement the other's format.

By the way, I don't really grasp why the RespIMG spec should talk about 
image formats. This is very controversial and could create a lot of high N/S 
debates unrelated to the core issue (which is: responsive image).
