To speak personally, at the moment I use mathjax for HTML. I'm quite
content with the markdown output from this patch without what's
discussed below.
However, if/when I can get the SVG baseline to work with dvisvgm I plan
on switching to that for HTML files. However, I'd consider this
behaviour undesirable for markdown.

The main reason why I'm hesitant about including <img>s in Markdown, is
because unlike <table> etc. the output now relies on external files.

I'm happy to strip this out of the patch (there's always advice for my
own config...), I just thought there may be people who like me are
interested in <img>s for LaTeX in HTML, but not in Markdown.
