Perhaps I was a little oblique: "Network" indicates that the format is
designed for transfer of images over the network, rather than between
local applications. Compromises are made in favour of smaller size and
higher transmission speed, rather than maintaining resolution; not
desirable for engraving pages of music.

I'm not overconcerned whether people see this as a hint not to use
PNGs in this workflow. But I assume you're not supporting their
use, are you.
