Actually, the XMP spec allows storing several thumbnails. In the same
way it defines language alternatives arrays, it also defines thumbnail
alternatives arrays. So you can store several thumbnails from which the
app will choose one to use. Which one to use is up to the app and it's
possible to add some info to somewhat describe the alternatives.  Nifty,

And scary too ;)

Which is precisely the reason why I don't like this idea. F-spot would
be the only app able to make sense of it and I want my metadata to make
sense to as many apps as possible. Which implies following open and
popular specs.

My 2¢, of course.
