What is the advantage of cutting an image to parts 
and having the browser show them as one by putting them aside?  
I would rather use one big image in the first place.

Fallback for current browsers is something I overlooked but it is easy 
to do:

<altgroup id="hippo" value="Hippopotamus">
<img src="hippo_head.png" altgroup="hippo" alt="Hippopotamus"><img 
src="hippo_tail.png" altgroup="hippo">

With the alt simply being overridden by altgroup in a HTML5 browser.
