Right, though usually there is no need to send the actual image (say you are using the same software, sharing the same themes). SI-Pub is interesting because with 0096 you have a md5 hash of the file. So, if you already have the emoticon cached locally you don't have to download it again.

Wouldn't it be easier to just use a data-url for the image? That 
already works with the current xhtml-xmpp spec.
(only for small images, though, but this would be ideal for emoticons)
