SFML doesn't just support every possible image format for the fun of it. These formats are not very common in our domain, so few users would benefit from them.

If you disagree, maybe elaborate common use cases and argue why those would be a great addition to SFML. Also, it would definitely help to present a strategy towards implementation, as resources are limited ;)

Thank you
