When transforming to HTML the images included by the Web browser may:

  * exist somewhere else under the Web server's root

  * may be served using no extension (see even
    though the file on the filesystem may have one

In both of these cases, being able to use an image path that doesn't actually
exist is crucial. In the use case of my GNU software that uses Texinfo as an
input format for Web publishing, this feature is going to be very important.
