Medical imagery? Think of the Dicom community. 
Spatial imagery? 

I do think Al may have a point regarding raster based
image data. 
One of my main interest's in XML is it's data 
longetivity potential. What facilities are there for
raster (pixel) based data?

CGM? Which I believe did cover raster data,
but is a pretty (too) complex standard.

Len, as the list conscience, would you have memories 
on stuff like IPI and IPI-IIF? (ISO/IEC 12087) 
What kind of ideas were behind that? Is it still
good, is it bad, or has it turned ugly?
