    1111I see @eatingrules already replied that adding larger storage requirements by a plugin is acceptable as the site owner can make an informed decision about it. Yes, generally server disk space is cheaper than bandwidth when an image is used somewhat frequently (SSD prices have come down but still not that cheap).
    1212
    13 It becomes more expensive for rarely used images, and eventually can become "wasted space" for images that are used very rarely or almost never. (The actual calculation depends on several factors, but 2-3 sub-sizes would be enough for rarely used images. If there isn't a good match in the `srcset` the requested image size will likely be larger, and the bandwidth will increase a bit. However that image will be loaded only few times per year. Chances are the increased bandwidth cost will be less than the storage cost.)
