I hope it matters. A big -1 on enforcing over-simplification at the
expense of important and existing functionality. If automatic,
uncontrollable placement of images becomes the standard, it will mean
fewer not more image-rich Drupal sites as site owners/developers get
complaints about "Why can't I control my images!"
I _strongly_ encourage Ber to provide a "have it both ways"
solution. Why not have an admin configuration setting for "allow inline
tags" with default off. Change it to on and you get an additional upload
checkbox for 'inline at tag' to accommodate the current functionality of
the inline module while simultaneously allowing for default placement.
