We've had bugs filed against WebKit in the image case too.  I don't  
really agree that having intrinsic dimensions is the issue.  I think  
images should be stretchable as well.  If the author specifies left:0  
and right:0, it doesn't matter whether the object has intrinsic  
dimensions or not.   The author's intent is clear.  Ignoring what the  
author explicitly requested just because the image had an intrinsic  
size does not make much sense to me.
