Ah, cool, thanks for pointing this out, as I'd missed the meeting.
This is fine with me.  It means that Media Fragments will require the
use of image() to force the proper interpretation, but that's all
right.

I'm fine with editting this decision into Images 4.  I'm fairly
comfortable with it since smfr was there, and I believe roc just
wanted a reasonable and unambiguous solution, and didn't have strong
preferences for the exact breakdown.
