The only point here is declared the quality issue, but the other relevant point is that raster images are stored completely inefficient (Data URI base64 encoded, against SVG technique). Would someone write this in a short way in there? It would be also a bit clearer that raster images in SVG is not always that bad thing. -- Perhelion 09:48, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Compression migrates the base64 encoding somewhat. Also, File sizes are irrelevant for Wikimedia projects, since SVGs are rasterized into PNGs before serving; but they can be relevant to people re-using the images elsewhere. And "if appropriate to do so" does convey the meaning of "raster images in SVG is not always that bad thing", which I think is sufficient. --Kakurady (talk) 00:06, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
