Allow for rectangular imageUrl sizes in matrix and table visuals
Currently when you use a column or measure with a category of imageUrl that has an svg image Power BI ignores the aspect ratio defined in the view box for the image and draws the image in an arbitrary square. It would be great if imageUrl would allow for rectangular images. In the case of svg this could be read from the viewbox attribute.
This would allow for the creation of dynamic databars and sparklines and other creative visualizations without having to write a full blown custom visual.

Thank you, Darren. Having the ability to render SVG sprites, icons, databars and sparklines in a table or matrix cell is awesome but as Darren mentions; there are significant limitations in its implementation. Allowing the graphic scale to the cell dimensions would improve this capability significantly.
