Agreed, I've added this.

Okay, I see that image specs can be safe.  But are they all safe?

And I don't understand how a slice spec is used together with an image
spec.  Is the slice spec used inside of IMAGE-PROPS, i.e. as you might
gather from the manual:

‘(image . IMAGE-PROPS)’
     This kind of display specification is an image descriptor (*note
     Images).  When used as a display specification, it means to
     display the image instead of the text that has the display
     specification.

‘(slice X Y WIDTH HEIGHT)’
     This specification together with ‘image’ specifies a “slice” (a
     partial area) of the image to display. 

?

Okay, I'll apply the same procedure as we decide for the above image
spec.

Okay, I've made these changes and added the `space' spec.  At this
point it seems that unsafe display specs are more the exception than
the rule, so it might make sense to define the
`enriched-display-prop-safe-p' function by excluding the unsafe
specifications instead of including the safe ones.  What do you think?
