I would argue that support for indexed images!=lossy compression.
You are passing an already altered image to the compressor. It's the color reduction that introduces the loss, not the file format's compression.
Why do we need it?
PNG is lossless and unsuitable for photographic compression.
JPEG is lossy and therefore capable of much better compression ratios on photos or similar images but is based on rather dated techniques.
