Auto-rotating images in the browser is controversial for reasons that mostly
boil down to web compat, not code footprint.  WebKit-on-iOS does it and
AFAIK few others do.  https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19688 is about
doing this in WebKit and you're welcome to read that bug to get a feel for
the various viewpoints.
