I can say that image-for-drag is the same sort of transfer data as the
other part in the most of cases (that is the best way for data transfer
but the structure of that data is not always disclosed by OS provider
for native applications. For example the MS does not open the picture
format, but it fixed and described in Internet by reverse engineering.
In JavaFX drag target we can access to the image of pictured DnD only in
case of JavaFX source. That is true for any OS.
