Yup, that works too, if the context is correct.  ie.  if its a
'tourism=viewpoint"  and you dont want to reference back to wikipedia (the
article), you can have source:image=wikipedia which might also work

When using the Google Earth POI, i would just also show the Google Earth
"Wikipedia" layer.
If the articles has an image that you think should be good, you can use it.

ie. in Qualicum beach, BC
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qualicum_Beach%2C_British_Columbia
There are 6 photos available, all of which can be attached to POI's
 - amenity=railway_station
- amenity=townhall
- historic=monument
and where it shows pictures of each of the 3 stones, these 3 other pictures
that help expand what this monument is about, could all be part of that same
node of 'historic=monument'

and BTW, the author of that photo is an OSM mapper that i have been in
contact with :-)

Cheers,
Sam
