I agree with Tony. The only reason companies are pushing so hard to convert feature based translation is legacy data and being able to convert a user of X software to Y software. Having the ability to import, or ultimately open, and model and get it in your new CAD system exactly as it was drawn is a priceless selling point. People switching from Mechanical Desktop to Inventor don't want to have to re-draw all of their data, but rather open their model with the new system and ditch the old system. In a perfect world that would make sense but it poses many challenges when you are not an Autodesk product porting to another Autodesk product. File formats change with every new release because companies are adding new features and some file formats are proprietary which makes it even harder to ensure accuracy.
