I don't understand what you're saying.  There are many things that .ani support
that MNG doesn't.  To name a couple: specifying the 'hot spot' where the cursor
is clickable (otherwise, how does the UA know where the cursor is pointing)?
Just in terms of images, though, .cur supports having the inverted color from
whatever is underneath it.  I could go on.  There are many things that make
sense in a cursor format that don't make sense to include in a general image
format.
