Dinu Gherman has been working hard on SVG2PDF conversion.

No. You can however buy our PageCatcher product ($1000) and a
copy of Acrobat; you could then distill arbitrary art in any
format (especially PostScript) to single-page PDFs, then
include those anywhere in your document as 'forms' which
you scale and move around. That's the practical
production solution but I appreciate it may not be
appropriate for everyone.
