Image urls in oData feed are relative


I'm trying to write a mobile app or browser extention, but the images aren't showing up in the description html for the Events topic.
Since images are spit out as relative path to blob storage, you can't actually get them (or a valid url to them) through the oData rest api. It would be nice to have them served up on a separate server and have the oData feed point to the url.
There might be a work around for this, but I'm not sure what that would be?
