no strong feeling, but why not. It seems reasonable.

Yep. PNG had a big problem in IE 5 to 6. Alpha channel was not  
supported.
See IE blog about that
http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2005/04/26/412263.aspx
But as of today, it seems to be a reasonable choice for more people  
since the release of IE7.
