Conceptually, it should just about moving data from outside from the file system to the image or vice versa. Whatever the use case is. Your initial approach clearly favors the "let's keep it in the image forever" idea. And that's where I disagree. We should keep the design modular, which is not that tricky at the moment. It it might become challenging if we "burn the bridges" by unintentionally. ;-)

Just to be clear, I am not in favor of "let's keep it in the image
forever". I probably caused some alarm with my earlier subject line
"Why not just get rid of the sources file entirely". Sorry about that.
