Pardon?
Who said about hijacking the PNG and MNG formats?

I am speaking about using .png and .mng "as is".
If PNG/MNG miss something from .cur and .ani, than missing parts should be 
added to png and mng via standard "add feature" procedure.

basically, CSS should use:

 cursor: url ("mycursor.png")

that's it.
and mycursor.png can be 32x32 png, or 128x128, or whatever (22x46)
At *any* image depth (8bit/24bit/32bit)
