Pasting an image into Inkscape does not allow you to edit it and have
the changes show up in the document - it is not the original image
that is linked, it is the copy in the document's folder. The feature
you don't want to break does not actually exist. Moreover people have
no such problems with apps like OpenOffice.org which embed by default.

20GB uncompressed SVG file would have to contain 5GB of images.

The links made through pasting are useless. They point to images with
bogus filenames. If this is the only way to create a link to an image,
then we do not actually support links.

Those other files are not directly related to this problem because you
do not paste them into documents. We can address link management
