I'd rather have the ability to know the speed of the connection with a setting that the user could set himself to override this web-readable value.

The user is on a slow connection? Send regular DPI photos which are highly compressed, bandwidth is more important than quality.
The user is on a fast connection and I detect a HiDPI display? Send HiDPI photos that are compressed but preserved quality.

Want to preserve your monthly quota and/or load pages faster? Override this setting and tell websites you're on a slow connection.
