Sorry, my mail somehow got truncated. Hopefully will work this time:

That's my thought too. I'm just tired by the stalemate we've got.

I think srcN is good enough and support it since that's better than 
debating forever, but really I'd prefer <picture>.

It's just a shame that we'll have a hack baked into the platform forever 
just because browser vendors want an easier option now :(

"src2" looks like an API failure comparable to Win32's CreateWindowEx, and 
adds to the mess HTML already is.

<picture> has easier to understand syntax, better extensibility (I'm scared 
to think how srcN microsyntax will look like if we need to add couple more 
attributes in there), and finally fixes accessibility mistakes <img> made.

Right now no solution is implemented yet, so <picture> can still be *the* 
solution merely if a couple of browser vendors chooses to impement it first.
