For what it's worth. I agree with Anselm. From a developers perspective, I
find <picture> to be far more maintainable and readable. srcN may be easier
to implement on the browser, but picture is easier to read and write, it is
a different element by design (It really serves a different purpose than
<img> which represents a single instance of a specific image where
<picture> represents a single instance of any number of possible images.) I
understand browser vendor's concerns, and they have to look out for their
interests, but on the dev side, <picture> seems like the way forward to me.
