Re: <PRELOAD> in <HEAD> section, MOUSEOVER attribute in <A> tag

This clearly isn't going to happen, but FWIW my favoured way of
shoehorning mouseovers into the HTML spec would be to give the
<img> element new attributes hsrc, vsrc and asrc, analogous to
:hover, :visited and :active on the ancestor link. Supporting
browsers could load the src or vsrc link first, then preload
the hsrc and asrc versions. This isn't quite as convenient to do
with CSS when each image has its own src. (Plus support for
CSS2 'content' is rubbish of course.)
