We have an issue in the Image Values spec about precisely what the
image-resolution property applies to.  There are two possibilities:

1) image-resolution only applies to replaced elements, and only
affects their content.

2) image-resolution applies to all elements, and affects all images
used on them: content images, background images, etc.

You can use the image() function to change the resolution of images
used in CSS properties, so we don't actually lose any power if we go
with #1.

As far as I know, this property is currently only implemented by
Prince and Antenna House's formatter.  I don't have either of these to
test, and the docs for both are pretty bad, at least for this
property, so I can't tell what they actually do.  I'd be fine with
just speccing whatever behavior they have, if someone would tell me
what it is.
