I have now sent a request to the www-style list.

explicit about that.

I absolutely concur with this, and it is a laboured path. How does one
'know' that there are 2 links/images in my example?
Well there is a fine continuum of demonstration, with MC Escher somewhere
near the middle.

Could we please have some indication of whom else we need to discuss this
with, i.e. on a HTML list, or elsewhere.

Re: imagemaps
As I understand it, never having authored an imagemap, they are designed to
have parts that do not move relative to one another, but which are
clickable, that is a very different purpose, and unsuitable for single
irregular shaped links, that are moveable.
