Yes I suppose it could, however, it would make for much bigger modules with 
maps as you would have to have an image for each zoom level you want or 
settle for very poor bitmap image resizing. And also as far as I know image 
maps aren't quite as versitle as SVG anyway. But I could be very wrong on 
that last one.
