Actually, it works :-)

It only takes around 15 lines of Javascript code to implement this as clipboard paste event for Chrome.
All you have to do is receive the image from clipboard, create a markdown cell, and paste the image as base64.

Not efficient and slow as hell for larger images, so I won't say this is a viable solution. Still, technically it can be
done.
