Yes - I guess I was thinking any kind of binary source. In a general
pipeline you pass in the object which I guess can be serialized to xml for
xproc (in many cases) or even serialized to binary and embedded in an input
xml document if each step understands how to decode the binary data.


I'm looking at the use cases in [1] just now.

And also you can vectorize your image in SVG ...

they are coming ...

remember XProc (and all its steps) only accepts XML documents as its
input so trying to manipulate a base64 encoded image would have to be
performed in the context of this data set within an XML document
(perhaps containing the associated metadata you mention).

there are other standards for embedding metadata in an image....
something like Adobe XMP(1) and I could imagine that an XProc
implementation could implement an extension step to work with these
types of images.
