The biggest problem that occurs to me with displaying a <dao> with the <dsc> is one of horizontal positioning. In a <dsc> that uses a columnar display, the various levels of description are typically indented in some pattern. So you need to get the image presumably centered within the column span for descriptions at a given level of component.
The way the stylesheet is written will depend then pattern of indention you use and if it's different say for certain <did> elements (maybe <unittitle>, <unitdate> and <physdesc> are indented differently from other <did> children or say <scopecontent>/<p>.
HAving sai all that, I wonder if this would work generically if all you want to do is embed a local image?

Subject: Re: Using <dao>
I would like to link to digital objects from the collection and keep it
simple. So, are there examples somewhere on the web? I found
discussion about this issue on the archives of the EAD listserv, but no
definite answers. I also found a lot of examples for tagging the
information in the <dsc> and within containers, but not much on getting
it to work.
