The part I've never been able to find out is why a robot would think the data:image thingie is present. I normally find it requested by ordinary law-abiding robots, not by php-doorknob-rattlers. Do some sites use it in lieu of the favicon, something like that?
I once went to one of those sites that makes a data:image file for you. It's definitely only practical for teeny little icon-sized graphics, like +1 buttons and similar.
