Shall we call it `xres`/`yres` then?  We'll probably want to say that
(unless the user changes things) apps SHOULD preserve resolution in
both directions even if they only support resolutions specified in
both directions at once - i.e. they make an assumption that pixels are

Obviously this does not change the definition of what a pixel is in
any x or y attrs or anywhere else in the file.

Attribute values to be `xsd:int`s greater than 1, with a format
default of "75", specifying the pixels per inch in each direction.
