because SVG provides nice features such as customizable colors,
scalability, etc. But sometime, I just have a nice PNG icon I would like to
use for my point layers, and I cannot do it. (Or perhaps I have not been

You're not missing anything - it's just not implemented yet.

It's on my (long) to-do list ;)
