I believe that image data and derived data belongs to DICOM, and DICOM
is the format that should be used directly.

We applied these ideas and demonstrated some capabilities here
https://peerj.com/articles/2057/, and we continue the development of
supporting tools in DCMTK and in https://github.com/qiicr/dcmqi.

Perhaps if you give me some specifics about "why not DICOM", we could
have a bit more focused conversation.

I do realize and anticipate that you will take this as a complete heresy.
