[css-images] Changes to image()


In the CSS WG conf call we discussed several changes to image(). One was about default EXIF support. In this thread I would like to initiate a discussion about the second one.

If I understood fantasai correctly during the call, she suggested removing the fallback behavior of image() with the exception of <color>[1] in level 3.

Does that mean that the syntax will be reduced to the following?

    image( <url> | <string> [, <color>]? )

IIRC the reasoning was that UAs do not catch up with the implementation and level 4 will have much more possibilities. Beside multiple fallback images, it will have conditions from media queries and other things. Since it is not clear how these other things will look like, we should reduce the image() function to the minimal subset. Is that correct so far?
