I like the idea of using <link>, but I think I'd prefer a more
declarative style of directive, something like:

  <link rel="scripted-image" href="...">

which the UA could choose to pre-cache based on whether images
and scripting were enabled, rather than imperatively following
a 'cache' command. A browser could also optionally follow other
<link>s too - for example it seems likely that a user reading a
partial document is going to want to read the <link rel="next">
document, so the UA could start loading that as the current
document is being read, and have it instantaneously available.
