Brian,

The images were initially created by various people using various 
tools in various original formats.  Most of them can now be 
transformed from their original formats into a variety of displayable 
formats.  We've typically used JPEG as the "displayable format" 
incorporated into the documents for a variety reasons, but I suspect 
that it would be little trouble for us to make the images available 
in a scalable format such as SVG.

Assuming it's possible for some, preferably all, of our images, I'll 
just do the conversion.  When we next publish a draft of a document, 
it will incorporate the new version of its images, but I'm not going 
to republish any document solely for the purpose of replacing, say, a 
JPEG image with an SVG image.  Therefore, I will make the new 
versions available to you directly as soon as they've been produced.

It may take a few days for me to find the cycles to make this 
happen.  If you haven't heard from me by Monday, 2010-05-03, please 
contact me directly.  I don't think it's feasible for me to be in the 
business of distributing files to every interested party, so I trust 
that people who do not have a very pressing need can wait until the 
next round of publication of various documents to get the newer 
versions of the images.

Hope this helps,
    Jim
