*SIGH* OK, this is one of those cases of looking back at code I know I wrote
(well, modified, anyway) and having *ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA* why I did that...

Possibly, the thought went that it might be useful to still have some
references pointing to the W3C Validator (links, perhaps?) while allowing
images to be served locally -- e.g. say somebody offered a local clone of
the validator; well, they'd want the actual images to be served from their
site, but perhaps still have the sample A/IMG link on the results page (i.e.
"Here is the HTML you could use...") point to the W3C Validator...

I think that's where I was going...  Don't ask me about $loc_image_uri
though ;)
