Definitely, but M$ never does anything based on whether it makes sense 
- they do whatever will tie their users even more to M$ - which is 
keeping WMF to be the only format they support :).

I suspect that PICT is too legacy a format, but with some luck there 
may be a way to export Quartz to PICT ... I'll give it a shot (being a 
Mac user only since OS X I didn't know of vector PICT ...).
