Client-side and server-side image/etc scaling can co-exist of course.
As far as I'm aware, the main argument for server-side scaling at the
moment is bandwidth efficiency, which mainly affects mobile devices.
With the increased capacity on mobile networks though due to advances
in wireless technology, I don't know for how long this is still valid.
We will probably want to move all possible processing to the client as
while server resources are (relatively) heavily used, client-side
processing resources are mostly wasted.
