I'm thinking that we want the keyword for intrinsic AR and the keyword
for calculated AR from width/height to be similar, and there's nothing
to "preserve" in the latter.

Let's stick with the image-resolution:from-image precedent, and do
"from-intrinsic" and "from-dimensions" (or "from-size"?) as the two
