Well, instead of inventing new things you could give comments (or ask) to  
the HTML WG regarding this. In the end I think, if XHTML 2.0 ever ends up  
being implemented, you would like to support media queries there. Just  
like media queries currently extends HTML4 in some way.

The DI WG could also introduce an attribute similar to media="" which does  
accept a media query.
