It's not clear, and I don't have one to examine. I would guess that they're
not valid:

- The commit message where the mimetype was added described them as 'Apple
broken PNGs'
- An Apple Q&A page says that 'Preview' (the OS X image & PDF viewer) can't
open "iOS-optimized" PNGs. (Just Works</sarcasm>)
