It would be nice if there was a way to default behavior for image anchors such
that "As Character" would always be the default. This way, the image goes right
to the insertion point by default. The result would be less like a desktop
publishing app and more like what Writer should be, which is a Word Processing app. 

Perhaps there could be a desktop publishing mode and a word processing mode. 

The word processing mode would insert everything at the insertion point. 

The desktop publishing mode would automatically create an anchor or borderless
frame for everything, including text. Then you just take the anchor or frame and
place it where you want it.

Let me know if I can give any input on this. Now that I've been messing with it,
Writer is capable of doing so many things right off, it's just that the default
behaviors are a little not what one would expect. But the potential is already
in the box.
