Illustrator also used PostScript as its native file format for several
versions, yet it still has problems rendering certain PostScript.

It's possible it is a WRI bug, but that's going to be hard to
determine without a specific example.  I tried the following:

g1 = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 1},
  PlotStyle -> Directive[Red, Thickness[.03]]]

g2 = ListPlot[Table[{x, Sin[x]}, {x, 0, 1, .1}],
  PlotStyle -> Directive[Blue, PointSize[.05]]]

g3 = Show[g1, g2]

When I exported the graphic to a PDF and opened it in Preview it
appeared identical to the graphic in Mathematica.
