Limit avatar file extensions

I probably know the answer, but I want to ask the wider community anyway.

Is it possible to block users from using, for example, .gif for their avatar, while still allowing the extension for embedded (not attached) images in posts?

Basically, we have a tier of super user whom we want to allow to upload their own avatar image, but we would like to avoid animated gifs.

@PerBonomi - I don't know of a way to prevent GIFs from being used as an avatar image while allowing GIFs to be used elsewhere (for example in posts). We have the general IMAGES > Image File Extensions list where you can control image types, but not specifically for avatars.
