The database is on a web server, so you've still got to upload it to that web server.
Making a call to the internet and having an image served can take just as long and probably longer than accessing the image directly from the forums database. I don't believe the database hosting will be that much impaired to be honest, as many organisations are using similar methods for huge userbase communities without detrimental performances.
Given the number of times the database for this site has fallen over in the last few months I'd disagree.
So technically there is no reason why it can't be done - if it's a funding / priority / preferrential engineering reason then thats a different discussion.
It's all the same discussion.
