A button (looking like <button><img></button>) would be better stylable 
and seems more appropriate for an interactive widget.

In order to be backwards compatible without scripting (I'm not sure if 
that's a requirement), current user agents would have to treat "pic" 
like "file", which is not the case. Something on top of type="file", 
like imagepreview="true", would perform better.
