I think you're taking that too literally. I dont read it as saying you can't have pictures.
you asked in another reply for a "sane" instantiation. I assume you will say that
<p>dog; <graphic url="dogpic.png"/>; as as <q>hound</q> in the <ref target="www.otherdict.com#dog">other dictionary</ref></p>
is not sane; but then it seems to me that you must define sanity. the above will certainly give the right
look to a casual human reader; it won't be amenable to a certain type of machine extraction, but there
is an assumption of a certain type of extraction.
I suspect this would be a lot easier in RDF......
