Yes, prefixes are just as annoying to have to write in emails as they
are in stylesheets.  ^_^

However, it would be bad to add a prefixed feature that's going to
rely on a currently obsolete spec.  We should either decide this
quickly, do it unprefixed, and then spec it when the opportunity
arises, or decide this quickly and put it in another appropriate spec
that *is* being maintained, like Image Values.  Since this is a very
simple feature and already has one implementation, I'd be fine with
smuggling it into Images 3 if we decided quickly enough.
