Yes. Too much.
I'd say that tuning up "embed" vs "link" in our ui, plus adding a few
minor UI clues at the proper places would take care of most problems.
As we move forward, there are going to be more things that just base
images to manage. ICC Profiles are another file asset that will need
to be managed. And a few other things too. So just adding some UI
tweaks and then some base checks (like the "quit without saving?"
check done for modified docs) and we can have a very usable situation.
