I haven't got any official responses, but I haven't heard any strong 
objections yet either.

Developers I've asked like it better than src-N and the old <picture> 
(although not necessarily srcset), with disclaimer that their opinion isn't 
official opinion of their employer.

The issues discussed currently are details whether <img> in fallback 
content should be always required (as explicit "controlling image"), what 
to do with scripts creating the fallback img dynamically, and how much 
testing the new element will require.

We still need to work out how to get viewport switching syntax of src-N in 
<source>, and if and how <img src> in fallback content should be used for
