This is a very good question, I have never thought of.

I would say chosing one over the other would be better in case of ODG and SVG.

But GIF and PNG are not one to one comparison as GIF has support for
animations. But in case of such widely supported formats, chosing one
over the other would not make any difference.

I would like to see what others think about it.
