If you copy/paste an image from a website into LibreOffice - you'll notice that actually a linked image is created. Eg. right-click in firefox -> 'copy' and ctrl-v in writer.
This enables the Edit->Links dialog.
That dialog is -pretty- ugly - it should be converted to a .ui file and the code cleaned up cf. http://blogs.linux.ie/caolan/2013/01/24/converting-libreoffice-dialogs-to-ui-format-100-conversions-milestone/
But more than that - we can now link (or embed) Video files inside ODF files - which is really lovely (checkout the [x] link setting in the file selector). However - these don't show up in this dialog - which is a shame, I imagine we could do something useful with them there.

Are the places to poke at this code.
Oh ! - I forgot; we can now embed palettes, bitmaps, line-styles and all manner of other pieces now - checkout the [embed] check-box when you:
insert a rectangle, right click on it, select 'Area', and then 'Color's and notice the '[x] Embed' check-box there.
We should potentially show all of those as well.
