RE: Adaptive images

But in that case, you'd need to reconnect back to the server for the entire page when the user rotated the device.  On some devices and some networks, that's extremely cost($$) and/or time prohibitive.

Some mobile devices are currently using CC/PP [2][3], but I have no idea how widely it is used and it might be less obvious than HTTP headers. There is a trade-off. The issue is to find a mechanism in which the information is on the device side to be trusted. (hear go away with user agent sniffing: #sniffkill)

From the Mutz draft.

UA-pix-x= <n>
UA-pix-y= <m>

   The display size of the client's device is transmitted in total
   horizontal <n> and vertical <m> pixel number, for example: UA-pix-
   x=1024, UA-pix-y=768.  The intent is to present and allow the
   selection of the resource variants best suited to a client's device.

The draft has a reference to "Transparent Content Negotiation in HTTP" 6.1 Feature tags [4] RFC2295
