I don't know much about this one, so no positive or negative vote from me.

So that essentially means "no inline images on blogs". Because any <img> tag that appears in a feed on planet -- regardless of if it is a 1x1 transparent image or a 500x300 photo of something at Debconf -- will, let's face it, reveal certain data to the non-Debian server it's on.

To me, this is a point where we go, "life sucks, but at some point we take it and move on because images in feeds are nice to have."
