With that, I suppose skimage could focus on the processing rather than the io, since ideally, we'd have one library for processing images, and one for reading/saving images.
That is certainly the direction we're aiming for. At the moment, we try to have a minimal setup that works in 80% of use-cases. Once imageio is distributed widely in the main distributions, we can even make it a default dependency.
In the mean time, let's talk about integrating it as a plugin, or perhaps add a page to the skimage docs on how to read more exotic formats (especially cross-platform video would be a big win!).
