That said, I do not see why we cannot offer <object> strategy as an

I think you missed `org-html-inline-image-rules' where users can
include/exclude svg images from inlining.

The term "image in-lining" is a very terse description of what my code does.

In case of rules 1, 2, and 3 above: the code takes into account the two
relevant options `org-html-inline-image' and `org-html-inline-image-rules'
to decide  whether the image would be in-lined in an <img> tag.

For rule 1 above: in case `svg-as-object' is also true, the code in-lines
the image in an <object> tag instead of an <img> tag and returns
the <object> tag. In case `svg-as-object' is nil, apply rule 2.

For rule 2 above: in case `svg-inclusion' is also true,  return the SVG
contents as a result. In case `svg-inclusion' is nil, apply rule 3.

Rule 3 is applied by the normal "Image file" handling code from
org-html-link in ox-html which handles `org-html-image-inline-rules',
but my code for rules 1 and 2 do too.

My clone of org-html-link is a copy with the exception that I
added 4 lines of code (and 2 lines of comments) to implement
the rules 1 and 2 (but we should not implement rule 2).

Before going ahead with a patch to in-line images in <object> tags,
there remains the question of how to make those tags behave as
much as possible as <img> tags.  My knowledge of HTML is very thin
and Javascript even worse.
