Scaling up vector graphics is certainly less likely to cause problems than
scaling down. However, when you start talking about QVGA or smaller, every
pixel counts and hand-tuned graphics are going to give a better presentation
than generated graphics.

However, even staying at the same DPI... what about a landscape vs. portrait
orientation?  Moving from 640 wide x 480 high to 480 wide x 640 high is
going to need more than scaling.  You are going to want to use the display

So yes, a different SVG file would likely be needed.
