I don't think we should worry about formats too much. We can always
make an on the fly translator to go between formats, then storing them
in whatever format is convenient. Finding (and organizing) the content 
is the key.

I output a lot of files to WMF for ease of use in MS Office, and the file is scalable, looks good when printed and is generally easy to convert to from other formats. Bascially, I use Adobe Illustrator to "filter" all of my WMF and SVG files. Other less than spectacular formats might be: CGM, EMF and a fairly recent version of Adobe's AI file format. If we want to push bitmaps, I feel TIF is the way to go.
