As I have mentioned before, I need internal 2D-representation of
Graphics3D as Graphics for having an ability to optimize 2D-vector
representation of Graphics3D before exporting in vector format.
Unfortunately, v.7 have no ability to transform Graphics3D into
Graphics, try the following:

In[1]:= << Version5`Graphics`
g = Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}]

During evaluation of In[1]:= GraphicsData["PostScript", "\<\
%%Creator: Mathematica
%%AspectRatio: .81114
% End of Graphics

Out[2]= - SurfaceGraphics -

During evaluation of In[1]:= Graphics3D::optx: Unknown option
DefaultAxesStyle in Options[Graphics3D]. >>

Out[3]= - Graphics -

The result of evaluation of Graphics[g] is an empty graphics instead
of 2D-representation of 'g' as it is in v.5.
