Well, seems the elephant in the room regards making the GUI functional might
be to open discussion of Draw's internals.

Don't some of the limitations of ODF 1.2 slip away if we could instead move
our vector format natively to SVG, and retaining raster format in BMP meta? 
That coupled with document saves to standards compliant SVG or PNG for
vector or bitmap respectively. 

And relegate ODF 1.2 Drawing to be only an import/export option--rather than
the default format for the Draw module.

Are we functionally obligated to producing ODF 1.2 Drawing document?  I
don't believe we are and filter export should suffice.

Obviously, a bunch more work would be needed to break things and put them
back together--but in the end we would get the functional capability users
are asking for.  But without having to jump through hoops (or implement bad
GUI) otherwise needed to maintain saving to ODF 1.2 Drawing document.
