Does this preclude introducing the picture element in the future? I feel there's definitely a use case for both picture and img@srcset, and if there's some support behind fast-tracking the latter that seems like a good thing for responsive images, so long as it's not blocking progress on all the other use cases this group is advocating for.

Are there any issues with the particular img@srcset spec they want to move forward with?
