Stephane,
This is a most beautiful feature, many thanks!
The only thing that would be an improvement I think is some ability to
enlarge the preview for defining the reference regions.
The preview image is *very* small, making it quite tricky to define
regions when there are many people in the image. Viewing the image
enlarged alongside helps but doesn't really solve the problem.
Is that possible?

Do a feature request. I image it is possible to add a zoom button/toggle on the media reference editor, that when clicked shows the preview larger.
