What about an image gallery, when you have 25 thumbnails on one page?  I'm  
not sure how this will work in cases where you don't want the image to be  
the "max size" your screen can handle.

Even the common case of having an article picture that is not 100% of the  
screen width will be hard to do in a responsive non-fluid way with  
predefined breakpoints.
