Yes it is possible, this is a customization option.
Position your cursor inside an <imagedata> inside
your <mediaobject>, for example, and select:

Tools -> Customizations 

Select the 'Treat As' tab, and select the Image radio
Set 'Source:' to 'fileref' if that is what you use
to address your graphics.  
Then the graphic should show in XMetal.
