I rather suspect that, if this  became common practice, the advertising 
suppliers would add a term to their contract that barred its use, or 
would pay a much lower fee for adverts used on pages with delayed 
loading.  Typically they would want the adverts to display before the 
editorial.

Also note that it may be easier to stream requests for images if they 
are downloaded early, and, if the browser is able to schedule its 
processing sufficiently to do this, it can probably work out which 
images are visible for itself.
