What happens if the user clicks the reload button or gets back to a 
previously visited page - will the UA re-evaluate the media query? The 
same question applies to images avaliable on more than one page.

Re-evaluating could possibly result in downloading a different resource 
than the cached one, thus increase bandwidth usage and even lead to 
disturbing user experience, e.g. display of a different image after page 
reload.
