 Being pragmatic, I'd say 'no', because we got a shedload of complaints
 from people who read our initial draft of the usability report for whom
 some PNGs wouldn't display properly (NS 4.x on Solaris, and IE-anything
 on Windoze), and we ended up having to re-do most of them as GIFs or
 JPGs.  So whilst I agree with the sentiment, it might end up causing us
 extra work.

Using JPEGs should be fine as well, they don't have patent problems.

Converting PNG to JPEG should be pretty easy; going the opposite direction will be also easy but slightly lossy. Let's go with PNGs for now and convert 'em to JPEG if we run into unfixable problems.
