The main reason is that png can be generate from svg. This is controlled
by skins/dispatcher. Maybe the best would be to extract the svg
generation to a plugin of its own (it is a couple of dispatcher
contracts and structurer definitions).

The problem with the resources.xmap is that it is a mix between skin
specific matches (like round corner) and general core matches. This xmap
I personally consider as one of the highest complex code in our whole
code base that is the reason why I did not yet found the time to slim it
down to a resources-core.xmap and resources-skin.xmap.

Will try to have a look tomorrow.
