Hey, WebKit, what's your answer if we just take src-N and use a ||
separator to cram them all into a single attribute?  Otherwise
identical proposal; none of this "gradually expand srcset" thing.

I think this is a terrible idea, and plenty of actual authors agree
with me, but if multiple attributes is the one thing that's acting as
a deal-killer for implementors, then screw it, we can mitigate the
pain with an OM later.  May god have mercy on our souls, etc.
