[Again, I'm way behind, but I figured I'd throw my thoughts in on this.]

My thinking about this is that with the number of features you're
trying to implement, it's no more easy to write or easy to read as a
regular HTML <img> tag.

For example, last week I need to include an image using a custom CSS
style to make sure if had no border. I just threw in the following
raw HTML:

        src = "http://daringfireball.net/misc/2004/10/df-ipod-banner.png"
        alt = ""
        style = "border: 0;"

If I needed custom alignment or something like that, I'd do the same.
