I understand that it may be useful to skim through permissions attached to
the images displayed; however, such information would be provided for the
end user only and would not need special markup.  I imagine it could be
extracted and added to the document automatically (perhaps on the fly).
Bots should be able to get the complete structured usage information from
the images themselves.

So, take for example a Flickr photo listing page, with 20 photos on the
page. It would be quite useful if that page gave the license for each
photo, so you can very quickly tell which are usable for commercial
purposes, for example. (And you need to associate the licensing info
with the region on the page you care about, because the program can't
tell you which photos are good, only your eye can.)
