I agree that it belongs more in markup. The reasons for it
being in CSS are largely historical: it was initiated by
the print industry way back for handling photo printing
and was implemented as part of the Paged Media module. We
moved it out once we had an Images module, which seemed
like a more appropriate place to put it.

I have no problem with deprecating it in CSS.
