Weeee... Deja Vu! :-)

Right. The image url used to be separate from the service uri and it might
make sense to use the service uri to point to various and sundry stuff at
W3C even if you have everything else locally.

All that code needs a thorough rewrite so I'll defer the issue until then.
It looks reasonably sane to me as it is so adding this separation now seems
to just complicate matters for no real gain.
