There was a comment by David Faure:

However in the meantime somebody did that already:
although it seems unclear if the mime type shall be image/webp or image/x-webp
and also I think the magic check 
<match type="string" value="WEBPVP8" offset="8"/>
is wrong and should only be
<match type="string" value="WEBP" offset="8"/>

Is this something which can be included into 4.11, and if so, where ?
If it's not possible for kdelibs, I could also include it into the kolourpaint
repository (given that I'm the maintainer of it).
