Indeed, auto-image-file-mode is useful only for viewing images.
OTOH, editing image files as plain text in Emacs is a rare
operation too.  And even with auto-image-file-mode set to t,
editing is possible after visiting them with find-file-literally.
With all this said, I have a question: is there any reason not
to turn auto-image-file-mode on by default?

I would like to ask the same question for auto-compression-mode too.
What is the reason not to turn it on by default?  How often people
visit compressed files for editing without uncompressing?
