That's a good idea actually!
Although I guess there is a part of me that thinks that having just a
simple image tag without any fancy stuff is still best for a primary image
(so that apps that want to implement it don't need to start messing with
this new format and can just load that simple url.

I guess the question then would be if you'd do something like:
"If there is a image_gallery tag on the item, use that instead of the image
and have the image tag be just image1 and the image_gallery refer to
image1,image2,image3 etc.

Also, I wonder if this could tie into an IPFS (decentralized internet
protocol) system as well
