So, um, why aren't you considering variable colour depth? It's a
small complexity cost, but it increases the flexibility

I suppose the reason why is that nobody has stated a use-case for
this nice little image storage format. "Store all my images in a
format I can understand and parse easily" seems reasonable to me,
and I would like the ability to do that for any image I happen to
value, regardless of colour depth or dimensions.

Hmm, I should probably learn more about colourspaces and whathaveyou
before contributing again...
