It was quoted and replied to in the email you just replied to.

It has many problems. It adds a level of indirection, it imposes
constraints on where the resources are located and how they are named,
it requires access to the <head> element for adding an image in a blog
post, and it makes processing of URLs conditional on information
provided elsewhere. These are all significant issues.

I also do not see how it addresses the pixel density use case. You
cannot use a media query for that because a media query queries the
pixel density of the device, it does not *set* the pixel density of
the resource.
