It’s good to see this issue continually discussed in visible places, so I’m not opposed to seeing these points raised again here. That said, I do agree with others that most of these points have been discussed heavily in public over the past year and a half, and I do think that the RICG and broader community has given them all adequate attention and respect.
I can’t offer much more feedback than others have in this thread, but I would like to point out that there is another approach we’ve been tinkering with that hasn’t been mentioned here: Compressive Images. The approach doesn’t satisfy every use case the picture proposal aims to address, and I think it may even complement other techniques well. But if simplicity and performance are your main goals, this approach might just meet your needs. We covered the technique over on Filament Group’s blog, and you may have seen Jeremy Keith’s post about it as well. Either way, here’s the link. http://filamentgroup.com/lab/rwd_img_compression/
