I do totally agree with you. AFAICS, all proposals with a significant 
amount of support (picture, srcset, src-N) share this problem. I don't 
have the impression that adding centralization has much support right 
now. Anyway, once there is a consent about the respImg syntax, it may be 
easier to propose a centralisation mechanism at the CSS side, e.g. some 
variable or constant useable in the MQ.
