It seems reasonable to me, but I don't expect RTF (for example) is going
to do anything reasonable with your source code. There could be a
concept of an "external graphic handler" (probably in C++) that would be
linked in (dynamically on Win32) and would convert from the original
notation to one that the back-end would understand.
