There may be a newer and cleaner way to distribute your drawing If your willing to spend a little time with HTML5
From Inkscape save as "plain svg"
Create html page using "object"
 <object type="image/svg+xml" data="your_file_here.svg"></object>
Don't forget to set size of image (haven't done this myself, but it is HTML code to tell what size the svg should open at.)
Use Firefox to test webpage.

At that point you can distribute to any place there is a FireFox browser.

Others will be able to use InkScape to modify original file. I am not sure about password file locking.

There are plenty of examples of how to do this on the web. Take a look at

I have not done a full comparison between the original InkScape and FireFox images. It does seem to work well.
I have not tested in other browsers.
I have not tested printing from FireFox.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info Stuart, its certainly been interesting reading.
I am not so worried about PDF. I know that the built in PDF does not function to produce EPS as vector and I am not worried about preview. I have EPS without recognisable preview in many cases so just show as a near blank frame. I am more concerned that the EPS is not output to postscript so does not print on postscript devices or in postscript post processing prior to printing.

Believe, on OS X an EPS with a preview used in Writer, that preview gets
clobbered and not-regenerated during PS printing. Lack of prefered pstoedit
in system path results in "red box with annotation" reported.
