Not if the image is both fetched and drawn by a single plugin. By plugin 
I mean an extra-UA piece of software that is allocated a window to draw to.

I hope you meant that an Intent API could be used to pass URIs to 
fetchers to pass back retrieved resources, without converting them to 
HTML or bitmaps, rather than to pass URIs of resources to be drawn to 
users' screens or speakers.
