While images are at the top of my list of desired medium types in a
WWW browser, I don't think we should add idiosyncratic hooks for media
one at a time.  Whatever happened to the enthusiasm for using the
MIME typing mechanism?  I made a concrete proposal a few months ago,
where HREFs can point to other parts in a MIME multipart (and thereby
to an "external-body"), and I've seen a similar idea recently regarding
embedding media clips in a "simplemail" format.  Don't we want to
take on something like this in HTML2?
