Bug: FormatTools support for complex numbers

FormatTools? does not current carry support for complex numbers. The CellSens?, DeltaVision?, DICOM and Zeiss CZI formats (at least) all support complex pixel formats of different sorts.

It would be great if FormatTools? could support all the variants these (and any other) formats require. This definitely needs to include support for single- and double-precision floating point, but it may also be required to support integer formats as well.

The OME-XML model currently supports "complex" and "double-complex", though it doesn't define what the former means--is it float or something else? The model should also be aligned with the requirements of the various formats using complex numbers by adding any missing pixel formats, but I'll not file any tickets for it until the requirements are a bit clearer.

I'll also note here that the model also supports "bit" as a pixel format, which is similarly absent from FormatTools?.

Moving to the same milestone as #11862, as this is a prerequisite. See separate discussion in #12599 pertaining to the BIT type.
