Jon,

I believe that you are being over-pessimistic in generalising that ALL Mobi files have images which are too small.

Take a look at my "Sherlock Holmes Omnibus"; a number of the stories in that contain illustrations. See, for example, "The Dancing Men" or "The Golden Pince-Nex", both in "The Return of Sherlock Holmes". I think that you'll find those illustrations to be a perfectly acceptable size in my Mobi version.
