Universal MathML Stylesheet

I would like to get your comments on the following idea
to extend the universal MathML stylesheet:

Extending the modes:
 -Native rendering (Mozilla,..)
 -TechExplorer rendering
 -MathPlayer rendering
 -CSS rendering

by a additional mode where images are used.
in that case the stylesheet would replace any math node, that
has an  "altimg" attribute  with an <img> element.


    <math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"
    will be replaced by:

    <img src="images/MathML_01.jpg" style="border:0;vertical-align:-17px"  alt="MathML_01"/>

(Calculating the value for "vertical-align" (relative vertical shift) out of "height" and "baseline" 
is needed for aligning the math image with the text base line)

There's no reason MathML can't be referenced by an object element, apart
from the lack of a MIME type more appropriate than application/xml.
