This seems to me a mistake in the API design which this update is trying 
to fix. Since we opened this API for everybody's use the base 
implementation of the MultiResolutionImage  should  be covering its most 
frequent and general usage. And in this general usage the appropriate 
resolution among the provided image variants should be chosen at the 
time the MR image is drawn. This is the logic we use internally in JDK 
to draw icons and other UI stuff on the HiDPI display and it is in 
demand for user applications in most cases.
When a predefined order of the image variant selection is required then 
getResolutionVariant() may be overridden to achieve that. But obviously 
this is a rare case and it shouldn't be a basic implementation.
