Except if you choose a separator whose meaning is well-known. Since we're facing a choice, I think we could use the || operator to separate the options.

#    <img srcset="(max-width: 480px) image.mobile.jpg || all image.desktop.jpg" />

We could even allow the use of braces to improve readability. Though I'm not sure it improves readability. That being said, a semi-colon is not a so bad option either, combined with a double-dot:

#    <img srcset="(max-width: 480px): image.mobile.jpg;  all: image.desktop.jpg" />



Not saying this is the way to go, but I don't like the srcN part of the proposal either. It's not really script friendly either because you can't read or update them all at the same time.
