And, ye, it's not "RAM image handling" but "RAW image handling".
Nobody uses WebP - which isn't even useful at this point since it hasn't matured and under-performs - and JPEG2000 was requested by Darktable users, so it's important enough.
More image formats regardless how widespread or not (or via external libs) is always good.
I like DarkTable, got my first RAW photos done with that one.
Nobody uses JPEG2000 either, so they're both equally useless.

Current information says that nobody except Google uses Google's WebP AT ALL because it's too immature and lacks features and performance that are on par with current JPEG compression tech. They are just now introducing features into the WebP testing code that JPEG has had for years and until WebP is more mature in features and performance, it won't be worth the trouble of implementing.
