Perhaps in a timeframe in the nearer future, could
MediaViewer be tweaked
to download and show only small portions at a time of large images and/or
tiled sets of of images? I think this feature might get a lot of use from

Commons currently uses tool labs for this (See the interactive large

going to happen in the near future based on current priorities
(Obviously, its open source, so anyone could submit a patch. Maybe it
would make a cool gsoc project to have a tile viewer in media viewer,
albeit that's kind of on the large size for a gsoc project.
