No SRC is 3.2  which is a shame.  They also proposed adding it to H? as well.

I suppose you could extend the scope of the pseudo-class.  By definition 
these images would probably be considered "alternatie images" since 
they'd only load upon interpretation of the stylesheet and they don't 
convey any necessary information as much as they draw attention to 
information.
