Whilst I, like Randy, enjoy the discussion that has arisen from this seemingly 
trivial issue, it does mean that someone has to make a decision as to what to 
do :-)  So, in the interests of moving forward and getting the book to render 
correctly on Quantum, I'll import the images into LFS' subversion repository.

Although I came out opposing the idea, it was a very mild opposition and I 
think I'm right in understanding that Randy is similarly ambivalent about 

Manuel pointed out several advantages to having the images in our repo, and as 
I can't counter them or offer similarly convincing arguments in favour of 
using the images from the DocBook-XSL installation directory then we'll go 
with Bruce's proposal.
