No, the problem is that if you analyse typical noice (scanner, microfone,
CCD) you have a very characteristic picture, it is even possible to actual
fingerprint the device which has geenrated the data. If you add white
cryptographic "real true random" bits, those will be visible in filters
unless you take very much care. simply changing the LSbit of every <random>
byte will only bring you into trouble.

JPEG Compressors actually dont generate any noice..  So by adding noice bits
you might actually generate files which could NEVER be genertaed by a
