Indeed this was a design decision. If you have a look at the plugin in Motion, AE, FCP7 you will see that there are drop-zones so you can also use project media.
In Final Cut Pro X the FxFactory file chooser allows a rendering pipeline where FxFactory can be smart about resizing the still image to a manageable size. This is currently not possible when using drop-zones in FCPX. Unfortunately when using drop-zones in Final Cut Pro X a lot of users could run into trouble because they would use images much larger than needed (think a 10K image on an SD timeline) and the plug-in can't be smart about dealing with the problems that result in that case, such as running out of video memory.
We hope to add drop-zone support to Pan and Zoom in FCPX the future.
