A4 in 100dpi RGB is 2.9MB. 100dpi is reasonable resolution both for screen
previews and simple inkjets. Really good inkjets would be more happy with
ca. 200 dpi.
Remember - this beast will be saved in parent master document - thus
bloating its size.
And how does innocent bonobo component know, whether its parent will be
priniting it to dot-matrix or imagesetter?

There is simple implementation of art_rgb_svg_rgba in sodipodi, if
anybody needs it.
