How about adding a expiration tag for inlined images/figures? Something like

<img exp=never src="/mylogo.gif">

Which would allow clients to cache inlined images to disk, saving repeatedly
retrieving the same images over and over and over again, such as logo's and
Arrows/fingers/hands/feet/grooves/ears etc.. Several different types should be

exp=never (The image is good forever)
exp=immediate (Dont bother caching it to disk, its gonna change very soon)
exp=daily (If you havent seen this since yesterday, re-transfer it)
exp=weekly ( for a week)
exp=monthly ( month)
exp=yearly ( year)
