In your specific use case, rational/fractional and arbitrary
resamplers are mathematically equivalent since the 'arbitrary' portion
doesn't apply. For example, rather than rational 2-to-1 downsampling
in your example, an arbitrary rate conversion would handle something
like 2-to-Pi. A more realistic use case for arbitrary resampling is
symbol timing loops where the output sample rate is not fixed, but
continuously drifting over time.
That said, despite similarities in math, there may be implementation
differences between the blocks that you mention. So one or another
might be newer, better optimized, or just easier to use. Tom Rondeau
can more easily explain those differences if they exist.
