The issue is that you cannot deliver just the fragment pixels, so it's up to
the User Agent to restrict the image pixels to just the requested ones.
Otherwise it would be simple. So, since the UA receives all the pixels, it
needs to be specified what pixels the UA actually has to deal with.

The Media Fragment spec already makes a recommendation, but is that sufficient
for browsers to actually be assured of what pixels to work with from within a
HTML5 page? In particular in a cross-browser consistent manner?
