Animating 'resolution' would have the exact same effect when 'width' and 'height' are left at 'auto' (which is pretty common when you don't know the image dimensions ahead of time).

If we want transforms that affect layout, we want them for more than just
raster images. We want them for vector images, for arbitrary blocks, etc.
I don't think this is the right place to handle that use case.
