    You don't think W3 should be able to render stuff which essentially
    depends on them?  I agree that the main use of HTML background images
    is to make pages more-or-less unusable, but that's not the point.

I wasn't thinking in terms of W3, but now that you mention it,
why *isn't* that the point?

    Anyhow, I think there are other applications of miles' implementation,
    which is what I was thinking of.

What are the other applications?

    Surely it's useful not to have to maintain two versions of each (or
    nearly each) image, and code to deal with them?

Could you explain the connection?  You're being rather terse, and I
don't understand the situation enough to understand.  I don't know
anything about these image formats except their names.  I don't know
their capabilities, and I don't know which systems support them.
