During last year's coding sprint, I investigated existing formats to 
highlight regions. You can find the document here:


Feel free to add to it once you get SVN access ;-)

As for resizing of the images: This would risk making faces too small if 
there are lots of people in the image, wouldn't it? Consider a group 
photo of people, which may be 3000x2000 pixels, but the individual faces 
are only 100x100 pixel. But that is probably a detail that can be found 
out later.
