1. No formal data, no, but if you browse the Web you'll quickly see that most
images are either presentational (alt=""), or logos, or text in buttons or
links, etc. Very few are actually interesting. Even on pages where you'd think
there were interesting images, they're in the minority -- e.g. a Flickr page
has on the order of 20 images only one of which is really an image from the
user's perspective.

2. Yes. It would also have a poor user experience.
