These files (and iTunesArtwork for that matter) are already covered by the unmanifested files feature. I don't see the need to special case add functions for them.

@artwork.
I did had an epub where I removed the artwork causing me to loose my cover (I did remove it manually, did not check the manifest file or other files, so you're right, everybody could do dumb-ass thinks with epub )
Right, so you had one such ePub - what would be good to know is if there are any more like that and how it got into that state. Was it a one-off manual edit of the manifest by someone. Or could it have even been somone running a "add unmanifested files to manifest" type feature from epub-fix or some other tool on it at some point. I have no idea about the books that Apple sells via its store for instance - do they all apply such an approach to their books?

In the 0.2.1 beta that I put up I added some code to remove from the manifest. So at least its removal will be clean.

As for losing your "official" cover - that I am less concerned about. Particularly longer term when this plugin has the ability to replace covers in the ePub.
