It is not because there is some image in it that a document should be entirely done with an image editor, be it vector or bitmap(*). Otherwise, all the docs I see at work would be done with Gimp/Inkscape (or PS/AI). The image editor can be used to provide the images for the more complex document, which is done with a more adequate application.

(*) Or some more complex stuff. Despite admitting that Linux is a better fit for 80% of their job, they need Windows to run Visio (which it seems has no serious FOSS equivalent).
