That's a broad assumption, and I'm uncomfortable having a normative set 
of requirements that can be satisfied while still not meeting the actual 
intent (because if we're assuming that the one dimension will be the 
right one "required by all users of the content", we may as well also 
just assume that the other dimension will also be the right one, and 
obviate the SC altogether).

-1 for just specifying a single dimension.
