Well... This was the first idea we had when designing Inband Images
(thus the name), that we just attach BASE64 image to the <message/> and
refer it from xhtml part.

But it would prevent the reuse of already got images, and sender would
waste bandwidth by sending the same smiley all over again.

Thus we dropped the idea, and moved to the file transfer based method.
