I think a simple addition can help a lot in this regard. You can link
an image from the svg file, actually that's the default behavior when
you drag a file into the canvas in Inkscape. All that is needed is a
simple mechanism to reload the image file from disk (or even some
autoreload on change). That way you can edit in your bitmap editor,
save to disk and reload in Inkscape.

I've just made a quick test and found no way to reload the image but
closing and reopening the svg shows the changes made to the bitmap.

In general Inkscape should watch the timestamp on the file and reload when it regains focus.

Sure, but I find Donn's suggestions much more state-of-the-art. After all, we almost have 2010
by now. My personal addition to Donn's wish list would be: head-mounted display & VRML
environment, where the user is totally emerged in what he is doing.
