Isn't the same true for PDF? You can wrap bitmap files in it, I think (e.g. 
when scanner software offer a "Save as pdf" option). File format in itself is 
not necessarily an indication of bitmap vs. vector graphics. With the possible 
exception of SVG, perhaps (which I use but am pretty ignorant about)?
