Sure, the OSM poi KML script can handle all variations.
The point is, is to find 1 that people are happy with, and market it
out there to all the 'map editoring tools' so they all will support

"osv:url=http:// .... .jpg" is another one.

When people are out there 'photo mapping' why not share these photos
with a standard tag?

I.e. A 'view_point' should have a photo in there :-)
