Big +1 to that -- src-N addresses all the RICG use cases in a consistent
and coherent way.. and is the only option that does so. Serving images in
our new multi-device / responsive design world *is* a much harder problem
and the "complexity" of src-N is simply a reflection of that.. Sticking our
heads in the sand and pretending that this is not the case, or punting the
problem down the road (as we've already done for the past few years), is
not a sound strategy.
