The CSSWG has resolved not to add `device-pixel-ratio` (unprefixed). 
Based on this I am closing this issue as rejcted.

As for the other sub-topics discussed here:

- We have not reached consensus as to whether we should include 
`-webkit-device-pixel-ratio` in the Media Query spec or leave it in 
the compat spec where it currently is. A few people (at least 
@tabatkins Tab and I) think we should include it, but there are others
 (at least @atanassov) who feel quite strongly that we should not. As 
it doesn't seem we will agree, I'm willing to drop the issue and 
settle for the status quo. @tabatkins (or anyone else who thinks this 
is important), if you'd like to keep pushing, I suggest you open a 
separate issue about that.

- Apple is considering changing webkit's behavior to align with the 
spec and other implementations, and make page zoom affect 
`resolution`. If they decide against in, they should file a bug 
against the spec.

- If Apple changes their implementation of `resolution` as discussed 
in the previous point, they are unsure whether to keep 
`-webkit-device-pixel-ratio` a strict alias of `resolution`, or have 
it preserve the historical behavior, but lean towards the later one. 
If they decide that these should not be strict aliases, they should 
file a bug against the spec, which defines them to be.
