For me lossless WebP gives 1.5 to 2 times better compression than PNG, and AFAIK this number is the same for lossy WebP vs JPG.
Yes, i like my wads to be as small as possible.

Does it handle custom chunks? Sprites need to have offset information.

Is it supported by the most popular editors? Meaning SLADE 3, GZDB-BF, and DBX.

Tool support in general is rather poor, and unlike PNG this requires a rather bulky library to be included. I don't think the format supports custom chunks.
