How about as an add-on/Extension for Draw?
Most of the functionality already exists in Writer, and we are not
talking about image editing in the literal sense, only about resizing
and cropping. It need not contribute significantly to bloat if well
written. Have you ever looked at IrfanView (a very capable and well
regarded Windows image manipulation program) that is only 2.0 MB
(installed size) with capabilities that go way beyond anything we are

Of all the images that I have processed for use in Writer, I have never
used the same processed image elsewhere. Your usage may be different.
I'm happier using dedicated programs and thus making
the images available for use elsewhere and in other programs.
Just because Word does something bad doesn't mean we have to follow.
FUD? Who said anything about *that* functionality being bad?
of the extra advantage of LibreOffice is that it works on low spec
