A lot of symbols used in other projects are bitmap or jpeg files; to not break the work flow during a map preparation, it would be very useful to have a QGIS-integrated pugin to convert raster files to SVG.

It's probably easier to add support for raster symbols than to convert them to SVG, unless you know of tool that does that. The SVG (vector) to raster conversion is easy - going the other way isn't.

Is this still valid?

I do not think adding support for raster symbols is a great idea: they become ugly when large. Converting raster to svg can be done with a number of FOSS tools, and can be a tricky thing - I do not see it reasonable to do it within QGIS
