It might be quibbling, but I thought we just established that img 
does not act the way you want in two out of three tested current 
implementations (and when testing Mozilla the behavior differs when 
supplied a size in which case it also seems to be kept as replaced). 

Since HTML offers a better alternative than the proposed CSS solution 
i think the point was at least somewhat interesting when discussing 
modifying a rather fundamental CSS definition.

Then i suppose you do see CSS more or less creating elements in the 
document tree as parts of a value for a property. As you know by now 
i think that might be a misstake.
