the biggest problem I see, is, that those cursors are system dependant. 
MSIE6 uses a Windows only format, KDE's konqueror tries to render normal 
images as a cursor (which looks awefull because of X11 limitations). 
Until there isn't any system independant standard for cursor images this 
property doesn't make much sense.
