Comment (by dshanske):

 The idea of having an external site that a self-hosted site depends on
 bothers me on some level, even if it is gravatar. I don't think it should
 come out, but I think it is important that WordPress out of the box should
 allow for not using it by having a default avatar as part of core and the
 option to add local ones.

 > I agree with jane and scribu. Even if it's not an important feature it's
 requested by users ([http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-local-avatar/
 Add Local Avatar] has reached more than 250K downloads and it's just one
 of the available plugins). Gravatar will be still the default option even
 if support for self-hosted avatars is added. I think it's better to have
 this option rather than making users to register an alternate email
 address on Gravatar or install an additional plugin.
