If SVGs were embraced more broadly (and the standards team supported) many of the raster images would fall to the wayside. These recommendations are still totally valid for content-based images (photos, etc.).

Some sort of hybrid between the two, and the recs in the article, seem to be the future of visual imagery online.

I'd love to also see something like FLIF get browser support. http://flif.info/ where the user agent could set a preferred quality for images/variants based on network/device constraints. Or download the first say 20% of images on a page, only downloading more after staying on the page for a length of time.
