Very exciting indeed and IMHO a better approach being a Graphic artist as
well as a developer.

I was just having a discussion with a colleague of mine about an image file
based solution for responsive images a month ago.. and the technical
hurdles that are needed to make it happen.

Something of a image format where the header / meta outlines the data start
and end blocks of the correct image within one image. Like a sprite however
the browser could call in the request to an image's meta and jump to the
offset position of the image data required based on the applicable image.

Designers would love to be able to save one file which map's out all the
required image sizes.
and developers would love to separate out the logic of handling all the
different formats individually.

Bravo. I'll drink to that.

Signing up now.
