In several user guides, we advise users to give their graphics useful names rather than sticking

If graphics were given easily recognisable names (for example numbered graphics being called 
Fig1, Fig2, etc., and inline graphics things like FooIcon), then it would be much easier to 
handle the "disappearing graphics" problem. The initial .odt file could be copied and unzipped, 
and if any graphics were not shown in Writer, they could be retrieved from the graphics 
subdirectory and displayed alongside with a simple display program like xv, feh or eog. This 
would make editing/proofing much easier.

Even if the file was actually stripped of graphics on saving (as shown by a drastic reduction in 
its size), the graphics themselves would be safe and could be zipped and uploaded along with the 
text file.

Fig1, Fig2, etc. because the sequence of topics in a chapter often
