Oh, yes.  PNGs generated from SVG won't work in PDFs.  This is because 
FOP 0.20.x has no knowledge of how to query internal Cocoon pipelines, 
so it cannot render dynamically generated images.

Keiron wrote a patch which gets CVS FOP (trunk) working with Cocoon, and 
should solve the dynamic images problem.  However I don't know how 
usable CVS FOP is currently.  If you want to try that, it would be 
easiest to download Cocoon M2, apply Keiron's patch (in bugzilla 
somewhere) and try with Forrest with a fop.jar built from CVS.
