I had this as a separate proposal because I noticed that in Gecko's
quirks mode, when both 'width' and 'height' are specified, an <img>
rendered as replaced element even when the image fails to load. Is that
something required to render legacy content or it's just a bug? The
Quirks Mode document doesn't seem to have this.
