Perhaps a simpler and better approach would be to have a new

For an existing proposal along these lines, see
This draft even gives an example of embedded images, though in that case it
is a JPEG embedded within a general SGML document.

I'm aware of multipart/related, and feel the optional "start"
parameter makes it unnecessarily complex.  In order to parse a
multipart/related with a start parameter, you need to make multiple
passes across the message.
