I worked on one project where someone decided SVG was too complicated and converted them all to PNG files.
Guess what happened when the application was on anything other than 100% scale? That's right... it looked like @$$.
All that fine SVG converted into sad bitmaps. And not just bitmaps... bitmaps for all the different states. Which could easily have been done with SVG w/CSS.
