[DJW:]  I would say that the URIs should be the images
themselves, if you go down this route, although I think
that style sheets might be a better route.  Even in an
"a" element, is is perfectly reasonable to reference
an image directly, rather than an HTML wrapper for it.

Note, my experience of such mouserover animation is
that estimated load times for pages using it tend to
be excessive even when you ignore the alternative 
images.
