Thanks. I've filed  
https://github.com/ResponsiveImagesCG/picture-element/issues/265 to track  
this.

Please leave out syntax proposals for now. What I think is needed first to  
drive this forward is:

* Use cases. Why do you need this?
* More examples of pages that work around the lack of this feature.
* Why are alternatives like CSS-positioned <a> links or SVG not better?
* Is there implementation interest among browser vendors?
