Sounds like a really good idea to me too, but I wonder how the fallback process would work? You'd presumbaly need each plugin to be able to (quickly) determine whether it had an image for a user, but not all services will be able to do that - if I remember correctly Moodle can't check whether there is an image in Gravatar for a particular email address, which is why it is implemented the way it is.

Even without the fallback mechanism it would still be an excellent feature if the student was able to choose their preferred image from multiple available sources.
