I don't think so. SMCL is specifically designed for line-by-line
processing and line-by-line output. That's hardly consistent with "show
an image at this point". Remember, SMCL is a format for Stata output as
well as for Stata help files. 

You, I and everyone might all agree that SMCL files would look much
better with embedded images, but they wouldn't then be SMCL.

Having images in the help files was a demanded feature already (in the
context of the log files, where people wanted to also save graphs in the
log file). A simple equivalent of the <IMG src="..."> tag for SMCL could
very much solve the problem and maintain compatibility with the current
situation. And even better if it was implemented not only in the viewer,
but also in the output window.
