Of these, at least EOG, GGV provide Bonobo components that are there
for integration reasons.  I guess gnome-media does it as well.
Epiphany also provides Geck integration into Nautilus (though, one
would argue if that's really neccessary, what is mirrored in The New
Spatial Nautilus :).  [Gnome-games is there to integrate spare time
and boredom with GNOME, so don't underestimate that one ;]

So, at least the first two invalidate your point below (regarding
"all" if nothing else ;):

I have viewed a very large number of images using EOG, without ever
explicitely asking for it, but rather, just using Nautilus to "view
this image" (I didn't use GGV as much in that way, because I'm used to
good ol' gv instead, and calling it from the terminal or Emacs
