So what's the plan?  Something like the email cid: URL scheme which specifies 
the hash of the file?

<img src="hash:abcdef000000..."/>

I think it would work quite well... as long as you can also specify where the 
image is (presumably you would get it via file transfer, so you'd need a 
mechanism to request files or something like that.)
