Personally I am in favor of removing -webit-aspect-ratio, however I 
think -webit-aspect-ratio: from-intrinsic and 
-webit-aspect-ratio:from-dimensions do have some effect when looking at 
the code. Does anybody know if it is actually used out there? Do we need 
to keep it? Maybe Dean Jackson knows?
