I tried exporting it has SVG 1.0. If you open the SVG file in a text
editor (it's XML) the logos that don't render correctly have raster
images encoded inline. I believe this is why they don't render

Also It doesn't matter what the problems are, we still need to
separate the logos and provide them in alternate forms, EPS and a
hi-res Tiff image. You can't send 10 images in one file to press...
It's not how the print industry works.... Like I said in my previous
post, I'll do the work but only if I get a nod from a commiter with
access to the website.
