magic-mode-alist was added early in the development of Emacs 22. All
entries were removed from it shortly before Emacs 22.1 was released
due to security issues that were raised during pretest.

I don't recall that there was any security issues.  Rather, these
entries were moved to magic-fallback-mode-alist, so that they have a
lower priority than filename autodetection.

The image entries were all dropped completely because of the supposed security issues.
