I don't think this would require T68108. It seems possible to implement today (although maybe inefficient…)

@matmarex thanks for finding this, I did look before filing but this task wasn't tagged with VisualEditor-Media, is that the right tag?

It probably should be tagged with it. Sorry, VE tasks are often not consistently tagged (other than with the VisualEditor tag).
