Well let's say some webapp generates an OpenEXR and wants to put it into
the clipboard as "image/x-exr" which would make sense cause any eventual
program that'd support OpenEXR would probably look for that mime type.
You've said you're going to restrict image types to jpeg, png and gif, and
so my question is, how exactly do you intend to support OpenEXR?
