That is my point, "much, much more", which is usually ok for content 
editors, but too much for average users.

Whether this belongs to image module or not, I think this is just a nice 
add-on, and because of its simplicity and dependency on image.module, it 
doesn't really make sense to have a different module - I just got 
surprised how easily it could be implemented using image.module api.

Yep, too frequently for me, people just want some *easy* way to add an 
image to their posts.

IMHO image module should definitely be in core, you just need to take a 
look at the "Top-20 most downloaded Drupal projects" list.
