Of course there is no data mining agenda here.
I agree -- not because I think Google's not interested in datamining, obviously they are, but they have much better ways to do it than some silly trick with image files. Google wants the web to be faster. That obviously benefits them in so many ways that there's no need to look for a hidden self-serving agenda -- the self-serving agenda is obvious.
