This is a very nice approach, thank you very much for the hint. So you
say it also works for CSS-defined images? (list-item,
background-image)? That's even more interesting.

The syntax is extremely long and rather clumsy to write, though, and
since there is no provision to let the UA know in advance the MIME
type of images, you still get more downloaded data than necessary.
