The current crop of HTML user agents are atrocious at resampling
images to different sizes, about the only web user agent I know of
that does a good job is the Adobe SVG Viewer, but the rest really are
poor, I can't think of any reason to do it - I think windows XP "do
you want to reduce the size for emailing prompt" is superior.

So whilst it might be nice, I think it would be ultimately disappointing.

Jim.
