"need *not* worry", right?

Yes, I can imagine that this would work. Should we allow to enable or
disable this client side? In other words, should we force the separate
storing of photo data in all cases or is there a legitimate situation
where a client might want to force the data to be stored inline?

I can't think of one myself.

Note that once we introduce this mechanism (whether it is mandatory or
not), all clients must be prepared to deal with PHOTO URIs. But this is
not new, because there might already be contacts in current EDS with

The only change would be that clients get an URI for their *own*
contacts even if those had inline data.
