It's an interesting idea, but I am not convinced it would work in practice.
Have you tested it? that is, if you do
and render that directly with CSS, does the <img> get recognised?
if so, you could have a TEI extension which renamed "<graphic>" to "<img>"
and url= to src= (note, <graphic> is a new in P5)
The same applies to links, of course.
Expressing the thing as a TEI extension would make you
a team player.
I confess I have my doubts, though. XML to HTML is so
cheap and easy to do on the fly, and gives you
add a table of contents, menu bar, breadcrumb trails, etc etc)
that the "here's some XML, show me it" seems a little crude.
