Reading this after the fact I realize that the word "default" is being 
used in two different ways in the descriptions I proposed.  Perhaps:

ON - Always use resolution-specific variants of images
OFF - Use only the standard resolution of an image
DEFAULT - Choose image resolutions based on a default heuristic

(perhaps add "(when available)" to ON?)
