While I'm glad a decision was made so the uncertainty is gone, I really disagree with the direction.

I agree that from a security standpoint it's unfortunate that cross-origin images are allowed at all but given that they are it's important that they can be used properly. This middle ground approach where some metadata (width and height) is available and others like orientation is not only serves to subtlety break people in difficult to understand ways because the rules are not consistent. Holding the line on orientation alone doesn't isn't win for either paradigm, all it does is make cross-origin images more difficult to use.
