Not necessarily. IMO PICTURES/DOCUMENTS is not to be decided blindly
on the extension of the file, that's useless, but rather on the
intended use for the file.

In other words, it seems to me that PICTURES should really hold things
that qualify as photos. That's a lot different than some clip art or
diagram. Those should go to DOCUMENTS, regardless of their format.
