Hi Ivan, guys,

Personally, I think we need to be pragmatic. If we ask for graphics,
and the only contributions we get are in a proprietary format, or the
best contribution (by a long mile) is only available in a proprietary
format, then we should accept them and convert them into an open
format if the author is unable to do this. When it comes to artwork,
if the idea and the initiative is open sourced, then this, in my view,
is more important than the format.

At the end of the day, this is a meritocracy, and contributions
matter. If the only person who takes initiative for a particular
request provides us with source files in a proprietary format, we can
certainly encourage this person to use Inkscape/GIMP, but it should
not be a barrier to the acceptance of their artwork.

I agree with the other things you said in your post, but the above
really do illustrate what I'm trying to say. +1 for the above.
