Overall, I agree with the changes you took, but I disagree with this one.
I agree with adding a note that makes it more obvious that any two
intrinsic dimensions define the third -- and that solves dbaron's original
complaint. But you've lost all consideration of images with only a width
or only a height, and you've dropped the mention of embedded documents,
which is a useful example.
