You are true but think that the html embed/object tag allow the functionality
to provide an alternate:
<img src="logo.png" width="200" height="160" />
... and in this alternate, just provide the rasterised png.
Another idea, if you encounter problems with inkscape, there is a little
command line rasteriser provided with ksvg, which is ksvgtopng.
Maybe there could be a way to install it without too much of other Kthings :)
And if it is hard to install those kind of software on your server, a work
arround could be to have a local deamon script which is in relation to the
server, when a clipart is uploaded, it sends it back to you, your local
script makes the thumbnail, and then upload it back to the web-site.

Well, why not :)
