I think that links are confusing for users not familiar with SVG, and
should be only created with explicit commands for image linking. By
default all images should be embedded. This is what users expect. For
example, import, drag and drop, opening or pasting an image should
embed it. A link should only be created if the user selects a command
named 'Insert Image Link'.
Of course, that doesn't mean we should make image links easier to use,
just that we should not default to creating them.
