There is a PR to backport the webp support from WP.

The WP team is working on finding the best parameters for optimizing images and how to handle conversion of existing images.

The idea given here of a shortcode would be a different approach than WP took.
Using a shortcode would impact searches. Also, an image with a caption is put into the content as a [caption] shortcode. Since currently shortcodes can’t be nested, something would have to be worked out for that.
