they are coming ...

--------------------------------------------

remember XProc (and all its steps) only accepts XML documents as its
input so trying to manipulate a base64 encoded image would have to be
performed in the context of this data set within an XML document
(perhaps containing the associated metadata you mention).

there are other standards for embedding metadata in an image....
something like Adobe XMP(1) and I could imagine that an XProc
implementation could implement an extension step to work with these
types of images.
