I understand the vector/raster difference, but the point of using EPS vs. AI
formats may be the issue. The only advantage I can see of using eps is to
send to a printer (perhaps embedded in another app, like frame). I would
probably want to keep all the source files in .ai format for archival
purposes. When sending eps to a printer, it may not matter whether I am
sending raster or vector eps given the specific print job.

Debabelizer ( or a debabelizer plug-in )might support ai format and give you
some eps output type that is useful. I haven't used debabelizer in a few
years, so I don't know.

just trying to help,
