"The img element is a holder for embedding attributes such as src. Since 
these attributes may be applied to any element, the img element is not 
strictly necessary, but is included to ease the transition to XHTML2." [1]

This means that, like the <a> element we don't really want the <img> 
element. Again, like the <a> element I'm -0 on using it - go ahead with 
the easy route if you prefer ;-)
