In addition to this, there is a maximum length of an attribute in XML (was it 
1024 characters?), and out of that you lose some for the prefix, and then the 
remainder is in Base64.  So the data: URL scheme will only take you so far, 
and there does need to be another option for images which are bigger than the 
tiny amount of space you can use.
