Dear WHATWG members and editor(s),

as WebKit today implemented the srcset attribute [1] according to the W3C specification [2] 
I do think it is time to update the WHATWG specification [3] reflecting the syntax as written in W3C's spec.

Currently both specifications differ due to the different values. With WebKit doing the first step 
and developers claiming for the W3C syntax I hope this will be now adopted by WHATWG.
I also hope other browser engines jump on the train and will follow-up soon (and heard Blink is currently doing so).

Until now I also have never heard a big show-stopper about this syntax so this might be the right step to 
come to a quick and good solution and therefore to a first solution for responsive images.
