The following geometry types should be offered in addition:

Ok - just tested and you are right - circular arcs are supported in LineString or Polygon layers.
But the issue is still valid. The dialogue needs to be adjusted to make it clear that curves are supported, e.g. by saying
- Linestring / Compoundcurve
- Polygon / CurvePolygon
- MultiLine / MultiCurve
- MultiPolygon / MultiSurface
This would a very simple fix just in the dialogue and wouldn't require any other changes.
It would also be good to use the "official" OGC terms and not reinvent our own terms. E.g. "Line" should be "LineString"
