I also use SVG whenever I can, especially since Inkscape's export to PDF 
is even less reliable than to SVG (e.g., it happens that some PDF 
viewers do not display it at all, or display just partial black-white 
gradient instead of graphics). But when I do use PDF produced by 
Inkscape, I always run it through LaTeX prior to including it into SLA 
document (as vector, of course). PDF created this way is displayed 
perfectly in all PDF viewers.
