Why would he open a binary image file in Emacs without wanting to have
it treated as an image, and without wanting to see it in hex?

I don't see what is so funny about the question.  At least some people
(including Richard) are arguing that a user opening a file with a
well-known binary image extension should not get an image view by

And I ask why a user would open a binary image file in Emacs (short of
using hexl-mode) if he did not intend to see it as an image?
