You might like to take a look at Client Hints - which is one of the proposed solutions for responsive images by one of our members (Ilya Grigorik):
tools.ietf.org/html/draft-grigorik-http-client-hints

There is a great presentation about it too:

You might also want to take a look at my slide set from Fronteers, which explains some of the limitations (you can go from slide 69):

But as a group we agree that having a HTTP based solution would be great to help address the use cases with server side technology. However, unfortunately, it can’t be the only way to do things as it cuts too many people out.
