Indeed.  And I don't see why that would be wrong.  But a first step is to
warn about formats that are known to be supported, just not in the currently

In order to avoid spurious extra warnings, you could only put the warning if
all the files the user tries to import are unsupported.
The current behavior of silently doing nothing is not helpful,
