Hmmm... I get what you are saying, but in those cases the non-ie browsers
support load and error states for those though - right?  Since those
reflect what we've described - would it be so bad to expose a CSS 'state'
out of it?  It seems that that could _not_ be web-incompatible since it is
new/non-existent today.  I don't know that it is necessary to do more since
CSS is defining a new state pseudo-class/filter out of it in this
