Is there a way to make the Image flowable work as HTML's img tag with relative

Just like in HTML an IMG tag with a 80% width will take 80% of its container.

I looked at the sources, but it seems a 80 width with a 'percentage' kind
actually works like HTML's scale (that is, show it at 80% of the image's

Could another 'kind' be added? It would imply calculating drawWidth and
drawHeight at wrap() time, though.
