    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.
