What's the point? The TeX can be directly edited, it doesn't need its
own namespace or to be stored in an image namespace => waste of space
and user confusion.
External images are evil because they can be abused or disappear. Here
the files are local, and the LocalSettings.php contains the path where
the autogenerated TeX images are stored, so this can be easily made an
allowed URL for "external" (i.e. non-namespaced) images.
