That is correct, it is far from being finished.

IIRC, the support in the TIFF and JPEG plug-ins is as good or bad as
in the PNG plug-in. What makes you think that only PNG would "work"?

This is definitely on the TODO.

Noone is actively working on this, so it is unlikely that the next
snapshot will improve the situation. I hope to be able to start
working on it at some point, but I can't promise anything and I would
prefer if I could just help someone else to finish this.
