Wait a minute -- let's temporarily forget about MIME, if it clouds the
issue. My objection was to the discussion of "how are we going to
support embedded images" rather than "how are we going to support
embedded objections in various media".

Otherwise, next week someone is going to suggest 'lets put in a new
tag <AUD SRC="file://">' for audio.
There shouldn't be much cost in going with something that generalizes.
