Yes please, thank you for all your hard work over there at WF dev team.
Any help in optimizing rank will ultimate help the community justify the use of Webflow compared to others (wordpress).
Why wouldn't you use WEBP this is Google's own image and the compression is insane making for faster websites. However, the downfall is that WEBP isn't supported by IOS and thus Workflow would need to make sure and render a jpeg or png file to nonsupported browsers/devices. This may be why it hasn't been done or still being worked on.
The main issue w/this feature is these new image formats are only supported by Chrome. They'll render as broken images in just about every other browser out today.
this is key for Google Ranking as well ...
