You know, I was thinking about that yesterday.  Some way of describing the
dimensions would be more appropriate than simply height and width.  You
would need more dimensions than just two for something as generic as an
object.  An object could be anything and could easily occupy many different
dimensions.  Height, width, depth, time, etc...  A stereoscopic photograph
occupies all of these dimensions, probably more if you analyzed it well.  I
don't think that these dimensions should override or modify the object's
appearance in any way; just describe the 'physical' properties for those who
cannot see, hear, touch, or comprehend them.  Obviously, style sheets should
modify the rendering of the object.
