The img tag jas needed a replacement for awhile but the way it is being 
replaced is just a complicated mess, it seems whoever is coming up with 
the replacement don't understand KISS.

Now it's sometimes the same img tag but with an added attribute, but 
sometimes picture with source children that are different than source 
for audio and video and with a srcset attribute, etc.

I wish they had just kept things simple.
