I'd also add
SetEnvIf Referer "^$" linked_from_here

This is relatively safe because people doing the "inlining" don't have
control over the browsers, so they won't be able to use this extra
flexibility to get around the restriction.  Plus it allows privacy-minded
clients and simpler browsers to still access the images.

My only comment is that this is already documented at
but obviously this is not the first place someone will look when trying to
answer that question.  You might consider adding the
link from your FAQ.
