On second thought, this isn't necessary.  You can always set <img
width>, or just let it take the default intrinsic width of 300px.
<picture sizes> would just override the intrinsic width of the <img>.

After all, even if your image isn't variable-sized, using the url/size
syntax might still be easier than url/density, because you don't have
to do any math, or change the densities around when you change the
image size.
