comment Displaying fractions nicely
If the horizontal line does not include the exponent, then I'd be unsure whether the exponent applies to the whole fraction.

comment PS to EPS preserving bounding box
The spec includes more requirements for an EPS file, in particular it must not use restricted commands (2.4), must clean up after itself (2.5 and 2.6), must contain a file type comment mentioning EPSF (2.1), and so on. That last condition is definitely not satisfied in my case, but apparently latex+dvips can cope with that well enough.

comment PS to EPS preserving bounding box
@AlexG: I tried directly embedding the PS into my latex file, and see no ill effects. Would you please post that solution as an answer?

comment PS to EPS preserving bounding box
@AlexG: The PS generated by rsvg-convert isn't denoted as EPS, according to the file header. I'm not sure if it is safe to embed, if it cleans up the stack and state properly. It might be, though. Good idea, will try that. I'm pretty sure that the generated file is a vector graphic. I zoomed in very far, it still looks smooth, and the file is pretty small. The code too looks like reasonable vector operations.

comment Reduce float size to fit page
@DavidCarlisle: I mistyped my comment, it's tabular inside the group not table. Moving the catcode change outside the box does work, and I think I might even have an idea as to why this is the case. Do you want to post \resizebox as an answer? I'll wait a bit whether someone does have an automated solution, but it looks likely that this might be the most appropriate solution here.
