Thank you, this helps me a lot. 

Here is my plan: 
* image tags can be filtered with filters, since we are dealing with nodes 
anyway ;) so that issue is solved for free.
* grabbing of files and importnig them locally will become a small 
addon-module for naggregator. naggregatorfiles.module or so. that one will 
hook into naggregator and deal with importing of files.
