Theme App Extension - asset_url access to users theme

I have an app that currently relies on posting images to a users theme assets folder. The images are displayed via section code in a users theme.

With the introduction of theme app extensions and app blocks it appears we no longer have asset_url access to a users theme. Can app blocks only pull assets from their own /assets folder? Are there any other url or media filters that are scoped just for the app blocks local files?

Did you find an answer to this question? In my case, I'd be interested in re-using css and locales from the user's theme in my app block but I get a translation missing error if I try e.g. the following in my app-embed.liquid:

{{ 'customer.login_page.email' | t }}

Unfortunately, I didn't find the answer. I've held off on using app blocks until I find a solution.
