Restrict upload MIME types for Customizer image controls to image MIME types

When using the Theme Customizer to upload an image in a image control, it doesn't restrict the file types that can be uploaded. For example, I can upload a video file or a pdf file, the file will be uploaded and inserted into the Media Library, then the Customizer will try to treat it like an image.

I think the best way around this would be to restrict uploads in the Customizer to images only.

There was a fix before Customizer controls in 3.5, ticket #22149

It looks like the Media Manager allows you to upload and select a file that is not among the allowed file types. I tried uploading an MP3 when selecting a background image, and after uploading the image didn't appear in the library but it was selected in the attachment details and I could submit it. Uploads of the incorrect file type shouldn't be selected by default once the upload finishes.

Haven't there been any changes to Plupload in core lately in this regard? Don't know the ticket number off the top of my head.
