I think we can conclude some things from your feedback:
* The most future-proof solution would be replacing all uses of
Writer-kind images with Draw-kind ones, and add to the latter some
missing features present in the former . This is an old discussion
coming from OO days , there's even an analysis of this task at .
* We could leave 0º, 90º, 180º and 270º rotated images as they are now
(Writer-kind bitmaps), because they are working properly both at import
* It would be acceptable to use Draw-kind images to import
freely-rotated pictures coming from docx documents. To export them
properly, the bug #65836  should be fixed.
Thanks to you all. Conversations at this list are always insightful :)
