I guess that Illustrator simply has embedded the bitmap into the SVG
file, such that scaling properties are the same. I know how to
"convert" the PNG to EPS or PDF (and it takes even less than two
minutes), but that again simply embeds the bitmap, so nothing gained.

To be sure you can send me the SVG, I'll have a look.
