In working on the schema implementations, I noticed that we removed the 
height and width attributes from the img element.  In my opinion this is 
a bad idea - these are valuable hints during incremental rendering, AND 
most user agents use the information to scale the image retrieved to the 
size specified.

I think we should put these attributes back in.  Or provide guidance in 
the prose for how to work around their absense via CSS.
