It would be nasty to implement because you wouldn't know when you saw
the @image whether it should be part of a new paragraph or not. Making
an empty line afterwards special would require looking forwards in the
input for a blank line, which may not be easy if there are several
sources of input, namely macro expansion and file inclusion. Moreover,
such a syntax wouldn't allow specifying a paragraph containing an
image and nothing else, which would be an alternative interpretation
of an @image command on a line by itself.
