CSS Images 4 describes the image-rendering property, with values auto | crisp-edges | pixelated.

WebKit currently automatically degrades image quality when painting images frequently (e.g. when animating), but we'd like to make it possible for authors to override that behavior and ensure that images are always painted at high quality.

We therefore agree with issue 19: we'd like "auto" to mean UA-defined, which may include degradation under some conditions, and have a new value, "smooth", which indicates that the UA should strive to render at high quality all the time.
