It's clever, for sure, but it took me a long time to understand it (and I'm still not 100% convinced I do). I thought it would be a good idea to discuss what we're getting with viewport-url and if there are any better possible alternatives.

Yeah, a lot of people have expressed confusion, and I believe I
understand why.  To fix this, I've substantially rewritten the intro
and that section, to better focus on the purpose of that syntax branch
- to provide a shortcut syntax when the image's size is variable.

Please review <http://tabatkins.github.io/specs/respimg/Overview.html#viewport>
(or <http://tabatkins.github.io/specs/respimg/Overview.html#variable-size>,
once github's cache clears) and let me know if it's clearer!
