How is the first thing you mentioned not a good enough justification
on its own? :)

I'm personally just mildly annoyed by this one file breaking what
would otherwise be perfect consistency among image formats. I think
Dan suggested[1] getting rid of it because of the patent-encumbered
nature of the format.

Note that I'm absolutely open to addressing the situation by simply
axing the file, and I don't think anything of value would be lost if
we did that :)
