Listen, the main point I am trying to make is that we should be happy that 
people are contributing design work, no matter what format it is presented in. 
 From looking at them, it is obvious Matt's contributions represent a 
significant investment in time and effort and we should appreciate that. Rather 
than complaining about the use of proprietary formats, it would be better for us 
to help educate those that use them about what FOSS alternatives are available 
and help them transition over to using open formats and hopefully FOSS as well 
to create the artwork.

Can we make a policy of only accepting artwork in an open format, listing out 
acceptable formats, and offer to help anyone who needs help in converting their 
stuff for submission?

Accentuate the positive, and work to improve the negative... Sound reasonable?
