As far as the docs go, I think that convert works fine (pending
any more information from Werner).  As a general rule, if our
build requirements are covered in debian stable, then we know that
we're not pushing the bleeding edge.  :)

If inkscape would be useful for the regtests, then by all means
use it.  You're the SVG expert, so I'm not going to argue with you
about that.
