Unfortunately, given our obsession with identity, if SVG is not capable of
photorealistic representation, in a small file size, then we might then seem
to need a (jpeg like?) high compression format, with transparency, and
capable of scaling. Alternatively if it were capable, perhaps a camera, or
at least a conversion tool would be extremely popular.

In terms of images, bandwidth and accessibility, this may well be one of the
critical areas for development in the near future.
many images are just not accessible.
