I'm not sure how that's very interesting without a common baseline format  
that all browsers can implement RF.

Also, I think the HTML specification should mandate (as SHOULD-level  
requirement, probably) support for the various supported image formats as  
it gives a clear indication of what authors can rely on and what user  
agents have to implement in order to support the web.
