Right, my girlfriend asked the same question. I guess what I'm more
interested in are more of abstractions. The hyper-detailed images are
probably not that useful, as why not just use a photo, right? However, I
think maybe if the tracings are a bit more abstract, then they might be
more useful to the project...plus, the file size would shrink.
I'm though more concerned about legality. Does anyone have any insight on this?

Crap...I didn't even check that. Well, that is a bit big, but man, we are
gonna start getting files that size. Our package approach is going to face
some problems soon.
Man...those are big files! I bet the svg could be simplified dramatically.
