surely you don't want that information in the source, leave it to the
back end to sort it out. If the source asks to include then
either the back end processor can include that natively or call out to a
converter. This is already implemented in the tex back end as that uses
the standard latex graphics inclusion: \includegraphics{}
will fire off driver dependent rules to either include that file or
to convert it to something that can be included, or to fail of course if
tools to convert are not available.
