I might have come up with another early approach that will prevent this

1. A customized user skin .js/.css file to alter any thumbnail linkn(every
<img> link to a  .jpg that starts with to another url, possibly or webptest.whateverdomain.tld) to ask the browser to get the
image from this site.

2. The js could containt a browser switch. Browser not supporting webp would
not get the altered url. If someone installs the user-mod and changes browsers,
there would not be the undesirable result you described.
