I was wrong ... Klaas Bals <Klaas_Bals@inventivedesigners.com> pointed out 
the use of vertical-align=, and I ended up with the same visual result using:

   <block space-before="1cm" font-size="20pt">
     vertical: with a long enough sentence that will wrap to the next line
      in such a nature
     <external-graphic vertical-align="middle"
     to show how the text interacts with the image that has been aligned

Thanks, Klaas!
