I am not sure about how the present to our standard users that she/he could 
insert two types of images in the Writer.
Armin also mentioned that it may be a solution to provide a rotation function 
for Writer images. When the user activates this function the Writer image could 
be converted to a Drawing Layer images after the user has been ask in a dialog. 
This dialog could then mention also the drawbacks (missing/lost features) of 
such a conversion.

Yes, this is also a missing feature for Drawing Layer objects in Writer which 
needs to be implemented.
