Maybe I'm just confused, but I'd rather distinguish:

physicalwidth (or mediawidth)
	the actual width of the image

	the width of the area in which the image is to be reproduced

	the effective width of the image

If I understand well, in the current proposal "width" stands for my
"reproductionwidth", "contentwidth" stands for my "physicalwidth", and
we have nothing for my "physicalwidth".  Right ?
