I don't think this is possible with a graphics tool because the images
produced by it will be "composite" images, meaning all of the content is
"merged" into a single image.
You can create a watermark for your images and you can sort of "embed"
one that can't be seen by the naked eye but could be "extracted", as
necessary, to prove you created the image.
The technique you mention above, which involves HTML, can be
accomplished with some CSS styling. If you send me a direct e-mail
message, I can help with that since that's outside the scope of GIMP. :)
