Yes. For any block type bt, if it makes sense, it would be possible to write
such org-block-<bt>-generate-image(body) that takes the block as argument
and returns the path of the image it produced.

Then:
- for exporting: the existing org-export-blocks-format-<bt> functions would
simply call their respective org-block-<bt>-generate-image and work the same
;
- for previewing a block of type <bt>: if such org-block-<bt>-generate-image
exists, call it and display it the same way org-format-latex does

Wouldn't it be great ?

Nicolas
