The basic problem elucidated in this bug ("one browser will reject the image
because it does not recognise '.php' as an image extension, another browser
will ask the user if they want to save the file (download it).") is false.  No
browser sniffs images based on file extension, particularly the .php extension
which is commonly used for dynamic images.

Further, the browser makes no distinction between "static" and "dynamic"
content in the way that this bug suggests.

All of the examples given in this bug can be achieved today using the exact
same PHP and the <img> element.
