Well - there are some dependencies (system as well as package dependencies) which I would like to cut down - that is why I am asking.

Depending on the use, it might be better to have a raster or a vector representation. But I agree - in general, is vector better.

No - plantuml can also produce png graphs - these are the ones I am using for the raster representation.
