Hi Guys!

English is not my natural language and I anticipate my excuses for something
badly written or badly understood.
I have been following all messages and so far did not see one saying: "To
have more than ONE image file is senseless."
If I am correct, then I am the first one saying that! :)
Lets take an example? Lets say about a Real Estate Website importing
Listings from RETS. It will have a MIN of 10,000 Listings (some, with more
than 100,000 Listings). From my experience, I say each Listing have around
15 images. Each image have its correspondent thumbnail. Result: one RE
Website with a MIN of 300,000 image files. That's a lot, huh? Well, I am
used to see a lot of Websites with much more than that.
Now I see the Picture Element Proposal:

<picture alt="">
	<source media="(min-width: 45em)" srcset="large-1.jpg 1x,
large-2.jpg 2x">
	<source media="(min-width: 18em)" srcset="med-1.jpg 1x, med-2.jpg
	<source srcset="small-1.jpg 1x, small-2.jpg 2x"> 
	<img src="small-1.jpg"> 

This example require 6 "versions" of an image! IMO, senseless!
I mean, the above RE Website would need a MIN of 1,800,000 image files!

Would love to read your comments and sorry if I totally missed something!
