Thanks for the research, I concur on most points, except this one;

I think there is a misunderstanding here;
almost no document is square; so the request to have 128x128 images can 
not be fulfilled and thus there are two ways to 'fix' that.
I assume there are people that assume the image will be made smaller on 
one side.  And there are people that will just write the non existing 
image as transparent.

On top of that; not all apps are paper based.  ODF can store svgs for 
example.  And I'm still hoping for a good integration with the bitmap 
editing apps into the ODF infrastructure (currently being developed as 
open-raster) which means that there is a direct need for 
alpha-transparency due to pixmaps certainly having a need for those.
