So the idea here is... if I'm being *really* serious about helping old browsers access it? Old browsers don't know what a PNG is.
This way, I can make a (web-safe colors, of course) GIF or a JPEG the default, upgrading to a PNG with the magic of srcset.
Granted, this means that a whole lot of browsers from the 2000s and first half of the 2010s will get the fallback. (Try it in IE11, or a browser from before ~2015.)
