I think what Tobias is getting at is that there's perhaps no "correct"
value for the image=* tag. Some will see this as a bad thing, and see

images that show the feature", then I think that this is at least
verifiable, in that the tag can be said to be true or false. So I
don't see a huge problem - but it's not something that I'd be
interested in using.
