I think I found the thread[1]. But I don't think it helps much.

The images I'm 'referencing' are embedded in the ODT  
files.  I don't refer to them as 'images/blah.jpg'. I don't place  
them in 'xdocs/images/' or 'resources/images/' and then reference  
them using relative paths. I pasted the graphics into  
files. It is the Cocoon pipeline that is copying them to build/ 
images/ instead of build/site/images/. Cocoon copies them from their  
embedded 'Pictures/' directory in the ODT 'zip' file to build/images/ 
blah.jpg instead of build/site/images/blah.jpg.

What I think I need to do, is modify the Cocoon pipeline to ensure  
images are copied from {$filename/Pictures/*.jpg} them to build/site/ 

Even better--since, as I mentioned in my post, there might be a  
problem of having the same image name signify different images, it  
would be best to have the pipeline copy the files (and reference  
them!) to: build/site/images/$filename/*.jpg
