That seems most appropriate to me, as well -- this is trivial to
represent in triples, and the "qua image" is the part that would be
appropriate to be catalogued in an ontology somewhere.

And of course, all of this only matters if we are going to let a URI be
overloaded to represent multiple resources, which I am not so sure is a
good idea (what exactly is the benefit of all that added complexity?)
