I don't think it could work.  Some images may be fine without
rescaling, just taking up a larger percentage of the page.  Some images
may be too small if they are scalead; for example, diagrams with
small details.  Only the document author can know whether an image
should be scaled, and by how much.

Did you experiment with the WIDTH and HEIGHT parameters to @image?
