To me it's not a matter of scope (how much the fs mechanism should allow the renderers to do), it's a matter of interoperability (all tools should be able to use fs when present). Having a "reasonable hope" to be able to access the proper data is not going to work.

A mechanism that is defined in the XLIFF specification (core or module) should not rely on <data> or the skeleton to do something, because the specification only define a place where to put the original data.

Again, this is my point: if you want the fs mechanism to display images in an interoperable way, it's easy: add to the fs mechanism a way to store the path to the image to render. Then tool generating the fs markup can also provide the images (if it's doable), and the mechanism stays interoperable.
