Yes, tagged images have always worked, and still correctly do so in Safari.

So, now that Safari is doing this, and presumably have decided that
the compat costs are worth eating, we should discuss just requiring
this in CSS.  Designers tend to use Macs in the first place, so new
content will tend to be produced with correct colors in the future,
and we can make that more likely if we all follow along and do it.
Chrome people are willing to put in the work to do this as well.  This
would be a great topic for our next call.
