Yeh, in example method, this is the suggestion:
(at least from what I got out of the proposal)

[conforming]
<img src="276x110.png" alt="fallback text" title="description">
<img src="276x110.png" width="276" height="110" alt="fallback text"
title="description">

[non-conforming]
<img src="276x110.png" width="400" height="200" alt="fallback text"
title="description">
<img src="276x110.png" width="50%" height="50%" alt="fallback text"
title="description">
<img src="276x110.png" width="276" alt="fallback text" title="description">

Note: For backwards-compatibility, even though these are
non-conforming, the width and or height attribute values are still
applied to the image for rendering (if css doesn't override).

[encouraged if you need to resize the image]
selectorThatMatchesTheImage {
    width: 400px;
    height: 200px;
}
<img src="276x110.png" width="276" height="110" alt="fallback text"
title="description">

[encouraged if you need to resize the image - alt]
<img src="276x110.png" style="width: 50%; height: 50%;" width="276"
height="110" alt="fallback text" title="description">

If that's correct, doing things the proposed, encouraged, conforming
way seems fine as far as UAs that support css are concerned.
