[webkit-dev] "Show EXIF info" in context menu

Earlier versions of WebKit offered the ability to view EXIF info for  
embedded images if one opened the image in its own window or tab and  
then opened a context menu (i.e. right-clicked it).  Current ToT does  
not, and this functionality appears to have disappeared somewhere  
between r14382 (which has 'Show EXIF data' as a context menu option)  
and r14434 (which does not).  I know that there has been some  
changing of how images are handled when they are viewed alone in a  
window or tab, and I'm guessing this is related.  For what it's  
worth, as a photo nerd, I rather liked the ability to do this without  
having to drag the image to Photoshop.

a) any chance this functionality is coming back?
b) could it, perchance, work on *any* image, not just one opened in  
its own window or tab?  (this would be nice)
c) should I file an entry in Bugzilla, and does this count as a  
regression?  (it appears to be a feature removal, and I don't know if  
it was an unsupported feature and thus doesn't count, or if it might  
be intentional)
