MZMcBride: You are correct that this is a reasonable expectation and there are
a number of files where direct browser support does not exist or is not fully
available, including

DJVU http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Alice_in_Wonderland.djvu
TIFF
http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:South_African_President_Zuma.TIF&page=1
PDF http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gitmo-sop.pdf

If I understand the chronology correct, uploading of these files was permitted
before fallback mechanisms existed to allow the kind of convenient embedding
into other Wikimedia pages.

And yes, subsequent steps after allowing webp files were tools to display a
jpeg preview for those browsers who do not understand webp.
