In case anyone else is wondering, the reason using CSS is a bad idea is
that it would put browsers in a tricky situation where they'd need to

  * Wait for all CSS to be downloaded and parsed before starting image
    downloads, making page loads slower.
  * Pre-fetch images while downloading and parsing CSS, potentially
    wasting bandwidth.
