Is it possible to NOT embed an image file into SVG output?

Diagrams.TwoD.Image seems to always force embed my input.  Is there a way have it make URL reference instead?

If a URL reference is not possible, will the embedded image support animation (I'd like to overlay a diagram on top of a gif anim)?

It was not clear from the docs if this works.

Right now it looks like using a URL reference is not possible with the SVG backend.  Though I imagine it should be possible in general --- someone just needs to write the code.  I doubt images embedded in SVG files support animation, but I do not know.  Try it and see I guess.
