The Images mage a significant part of the ease of use. If we were working
without we could step back to ASCII as well... 
My point was that better viewer functionality (i.e., boosting the 
application side) will require beter technology and capacity on the 
lower levels as well, i.e. higher bandwidth. We risk a reputation if we 
avoid telling this to the end users.
