Hi Noel,

At least for images, one major benefit of the image handling rework from
Tomaz was exactly that once the import process finishes, we no longer
read from the file. (So you can't loose images if you delete a file on
the filesystem while it's still opened in LO.)

So that sounds like a risk that doesn't exist anymore.
