Reinhard,

It seems to me that the disadvantages outweigh the benefits.

1. Very Large File Size for Non-Trivial Images.
2. Serious Processing Performance Hog.
3. Large Parts may need to have Low Granularity (and so Low 
Context) to Keep File Size Small. (Similar to SVG Path Information 
or Efforts to Represent FP Numbers in XML.)
4. List of Noteworthy Use Cases is Unclear.
5. What about Legacy Images? If They can be Transformed to 
"PPG", Why Not Transform them to SVG? (It is Possible is Some 
Cases.)
