I realize that the OBJECT element has lost favor in the
include-pattern due to browser issues.  But it provides a @data
attribute which, can be "used to specify the location of the object's
data, for instance image data for objects defining images, or more
generally, a serialized form of an object which can be used to
recreate it." [http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/objects.html#adef-data]

Given the browser issues, this won't work for everyone all the time
but, truth be told, nothing ever does.  Could the object/@data pair be
considered as an option to be used at the author's discretion (perhaps
as an alternative to the empty anchor proposed earlier.)
