Now, now, now... are the images random? Is the layout random?
You could also categorise the various differences something like this:-
Meaning Form Meaning Content
Random - -
Arbitrary tacit tacit
Expressive - tacit
Meaningful explicit explicit
Hoax explicit -
Crypto explicit misleading
Stego misleading explicit
You might then use this to build a permutation engine (similar to Ramon
Llull's mnenomic engine) to predict various other possible types of hypothesis.
BTW, what are the semiotics of steganography? :-o
