eeeps has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [resize-observer-1] physical, rather than logical, dimensions – for images ==
[`ResizeObserverSize`](https://drafts.csswg.org/resize-observer/#resizeobserversize) only delivers an observed element’s `inline` and `block` sizes.

This is great when working with textual content, but I ran into a use case today where I actually wanted the height and width of a box, when trying to dynamically load an image to fit it.

The image always needs to be oriented as we see the world -- with horizontal horizions, people's faces up, not sideways, etc. I need to know its width, and height -- not its size in dimensions relative to the writing dimension.

Here's a very quick sketch - basically, inline and block rotate but the image content should not - if this is confusing I can throw together a more fleshed-out use case.
