The only vector format you mentioned was SVG.  Both PNG and TIFF are
raster graphic, and PDF either uses lossless compression (a scheme
based on TIFF I reckon) or JPEG.

Basically, either:

1) create a SVG mapping in Ogg
2) use Kate's PNG embebeding
3) or Vorbis COVERART uuencode (JPEG)
4) or forget all of this and use an XSPF playlist

Also, CMML is XML.  In theory (do not quote me on that) it should be
able to embed SVG, which is XML as well.  CMML is another
lyrics/subtitles format for Ogg.
