I think its a great idea.  However, I am concerned that those downloading the
images remember to give credit to the authors of the lifecycles. I frequently 
cut and paste images drawn from a number of sources to produce a lifecycle
for a parasite i'm interested in at the moment. Most of the time there is no
comparable image available in the formal literature, or I would use it.  We
need to keep in mind that even the "obligatory lifecycle" image is someone's
creative achievement.
