The version of the property in Images 3 isn't overly useful.  It's
included as it documents an existing feature that CSS-based printers
implemented unprefixed.

Images 4 will add a "from-image" value that respects EXIF values,
since browsers are forced to ignore EXIF by default, and this causes a
lot of images on the web to be rotated wrongly.
