Topic: referring to external images

Hi,
It seems from the reference (1.4, sect 4.8.4) that it is possible to "include" external images in a pdf. The example gives a file on a webserver. What we would like to do is keep the files outside the pdf. The example given is for printing - is this possible for showing onscreen also? Would I be able to go something like:
16 0 obj
<< /Type /XObject
/Subtype /Image
/Width 1000
/Height 2000
/ColorSpace /DeviceRGB
/BitsPerComponent 8
/Length 0 % This is an external stream
/F << /FS /URL
/F (http://www.myserver.mycorp.com/images/exttest.jpg)
>>
/FFilter /DCTDecode
>>
stream
endstream
endobj

I have stolen this directly from the Reference (and deleted the comment % Alternate Image...). Will this work for a primary image?
Cheers
Antoine
