We done it and try the ImageReader described upper. Some experience to 
share, but it works. Our goal was to respect some of the will of the 
author in his page layout, so instead of pixels, question was to render %

After lots of tests the easiest is

<htm:img width="33%" align="right"/>

imageReader is useful to generate fixed size thumbnails, but for other 
things, you may encounter very big problems, especially when you do some 
javascript that request images according to client browser width.

I don't know enough cocoon internal, but I guess lots of images cached 
for every possible sizes.
