Ohh, I learned something new today, didn't realize you could trick it like that.   I now notice the source code button being there in the expanded toolbar, I never bothered to expand it because the image buttons were not there.

True, diligence would be needed.  What could help reduce the chance of it happening is using group storage in this case, a link from your Files (that's what I did with our groups so this way the graphics could be reused in the wiki -or elsewhere- without the "AddNew" duplication), or, if no Files, sent an email to the group with the graphic, lock the topic, then use the URL groups.io is using for that file, as that won't/shouldn't change since emails went out with it.
