+1 for Thorsten
For editing graphics there is Draw and  we need a filter who makes the 
original graphic editable
For publishing graphics there is Writer and  we need a filter who just 
imports and do not touch the original graphic
if the "one" filter can do both:Â  OK

ps. a filter who imports PDF in to Writer: +10
