there might be an issue with multiple images separated by ; because the semicolon does not have to be escaped in URLs. If the protocol is given every time it might still be ok? e.g. http://111.com/example1.jpg;http://111.com/example2.jpg would be unambiguous because you cannot have // in the middle of a filename, or can you?

Generally, putting additional image urls in the note tag does not seem to be an improvement. Why “note” and “note1”, rather than for example “image1”? Note does not have a semantic meaning that makes it suitable for image urls. If I was right in the previous paragraph and the semicolon followed by a protocol is unambiguous, we should rather keep these as they are.
