Yes, this makes sense to me having just re-read this discussion. As an
 author you don't expect the ratio of an image to be changed unless 
you specifically request that to happen. 

I can see situations occurring where in development test data doesn't 
highlight the ratio destroying behaviour. However once the site is 
live and real data is added via a CMS etc. images start to look 
weirdly stretched. By making the default ratio preserving then in that
 scenario images might overflow a box or have unwanted gaps but I 
think that is closer to how authors expect things to behave.
