This is not really true. If you produce a dvi file, it simply has
reference to a graphic file, which the dvi-to-whatever processors
needs to expand. which formats are supported depends on the dvi
processor, therefore.  pdfTeX is more limited, as it _does_ include
the graphic up front, but even so the current version can handle JPEG, 

Getting dvips to grok eg .gif files is not that hard. I appreciate
your discussion, but in this context I am not convinced its really needed.
