Thank you Philippe! As far as I can tell, there was concern about a `postpone` CSS property, but no clear reason to remove the `postpone` attribute. Am I reading this wrong? Are there good reasons for dropping the attribute?

Iím coming at this from a responsive images point of view. Given a user browsing on a mobile connection with limited bandwidth, a `lazyload` attr would certainly help improve (apparent) load time, but it doesnít have the overall bandwidth-, memory-, and battery-saving benefits of `postpone`.

Thanks
