There are (apparently) a lot of commercial "clip art collection" cds
around that use WMF format files, though.  It's a lot nicer to be able
to tell someone that he can just drop the graphic into his application
rather than having to do X,Y and Z before he can use the graphic that
he paid for.

It may be a less-than-ideal format but maybe that makes it similar to
a doc file.  Nobody likes it but everyone has to deal with it anyway.
