I could be out of date, but I don't think so.
It may well be reasonably easy to extend the HTML importer to use Qt's
HTTP and URL-handling facilities to download images and save them to a
local directory (if not already local URLs). From there it should be
possible to add image frames for them.
This would require modifying the C++ HTML import plugin, and before
starting on anything like that I'd check with Riku in case he (a) has a
better version already in the works or (b) didn't support image import
for reasons beyond just time and need in the first place.
